Recent innovations in the power industry arena have arisen in several categories: customer/end users, power industry field work, and hardware/software new developments. Six advancements enhancing efficiencies and producing strides for clean, green energy stand out as potential power industry future-looking innovative progress milestones: recharging stations for electric cars; sensor products; nanomaterials; voice responsive repair integration; regenerative hardware; and processor design upgraded software. A quick summary of these six advancements showcases power industry ingenuity with a look at the successes on the move to already become business as usual within the next decade.
One of the most encouraging power industry innovations built for the customer or end users is the support of electric powered vehicles’ recharging stations. Electric powered vehicles can recharge on personal chargers or at service stations equipped with heavy-duty charging portals for longer mileage drives. Estimates based on the support for actual use of electric powered vehicles are given by measuring kwH (kilowatt hours) by miles when using home-based or personal charging equipment. Public charging stations are supported by underwriting costs and taxes, although they do still require fees to “juice up”. “There are federal incentive programs to help cover infrastructure costs or the cost of the charging station itself. Utility rebates covering up to 100% of the costs are sometimes available,” (Jerry; Boyd, Chanice; February 11, 2022).
