How Deadly Is Your Kilowatt? We Rank The Killer Energy Sources

https://www.forbes.com/sites/jamesconca/2012/06/10/energys-deathprint-a-price-always-paid/#3c839a52709b Everyone’s heard of the carbon footprint of different energy sources, the largest footprint belonging to coal because every kWhr of energy produced emits about 900 grams of CO2. Wind and nuclear have the smallest carbon footprint with only 15 g emitted per kWhr. But how dangerous different energy sources are for people working with

Direct-Current Microgrids to Solve Power Woes

Innovative Direct-Current Microgrids to Solve India’s Power Woes – IEEE Spectrum article tells that a group at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras in conjunction with industrial partners, relies on solar-powered direct-current (DC) microgrids. For homes not connected to the grid, a 125-watt microgrid can serve as the sole source of electricity. For connected
