Natural Disasters Don’t Have a Chance against This New Technology

by | published November 23rd, 2019

The news over the past few weeks has been grim, indeed.

California and Australia are both in the throes of devastating wildfires…

Venice is flooded…

Japan recently experienced one of its worst typhoons in history…

Eastern Asia just had a 6.1 earthquake…

Texas was hit with a destructive tornado…

The list goes on and on.

Between evacuations, destruction of property, loss of power, and other significant effects, people around the world are seeing the signs of a changing landscape.

Severe weather has been increasing steadily over the past few years, and more and more people are becoming aware of the implications.

In other words, if we are to be able to survive future natural disasters (at the level of destruction they seem to have become) with our society and infrastructure intact, there are certain changes that must be made.

Here’s what I mean…

How the Power Grid Could Enter the 21st Century

Of course, if a natural disaster is destructive enough, there is simply no way to properly prevent buildings, bridges, or roads from being damaged.

No matter how strong and fortified you make something, Mother Nature tends to win.

However, that’s not to say there aren’t things we can be doing to limit the amount of destruction.

Like improving our power grid infrastructure.

It cannot be denied that our power grids are aging; in fact, in much of the world, the grids haven’t been significantly updated since they were installed, back in the 1870s.

Which means that the current technology is light-years ahead of the system we rely on for much of modern life.

Industry experts believe they have a solution.

They’re called nanogrids.

Simply put, this technology allows our power grids to become part of the smart grid, in keeping with the “smart” revolution technology has been following for the past few years.

Some of the transition to the smart grid calls for renewable energy like solar panels and wind turbines, but nanogrids works on a digital principle.

In other words, nanogrids don’t even need to be connected to the overall power grid. It is a “mostly autonomous [direct current]-based system that would digitally connect individual devices to one another, as well as to power generation and storage within [a] building.”

This technology could revolutionize the way the power grid functions, and it’s coming ever closer to becoming reality.
