As the world’s electricity output has grown, and brought more of the world together, there has been a shift in the balance of power between those regions where power is generated, and those where power is consumed. In essence, the old model of a select few countries and regions producing vast supplies of power, and selling it to the rest of the world, is becoming untenable, as technological development brings the need for on-demand electricity to every inch of the globe.
Distributed generation, the practice of building small-scale power generation facilities in the areas where the power is ultimately needed, could fix this issue, but could require a fundamental change in the nature of the world’s power mix.
