As more of the globe’s population becomes connected—and concerned about the carbon footprint—we find ourselves constantly hungry for better energy solutions to power our homes, vehicles, businesses and devices. More and more industries are embracing alternative energy. Hybrid vehicles and rooftop solar panels are common sights, for example, and the growth of Internet of Things is absolutely contingent on improved energy efficiency. The electrical grid that will power economies for the next 100 years is making use of new renewable sources and looking to leverage higher capacity storage. Going forward, design and engineering solutions will be required to help reduce complexity, cost and risk while assisting companies with navigating these uncharted territories.
