Historically, infrastructure — that is, the organizational structures and facilities that keep society running — has long served to connect the world, ushering humanity into the modern digital age. Yet infrastructure development in the 21st century looks much different than it did in the past. For instance, as the negative effects of climate change become increasingly apparent, sustainable infrastructure development is now a high priority around the world.
Where sustainability is concerned, various power industry experts believe that “individual actions are important but they are not sufficient.” Instead, sustainability must be achieved on a large scale, via social institutions such as government bodies, businesses, and non-profit cooperatives. Improving outdated infrastructure, while being mindful of a community’s environmental impact, is a great place to start.
