7 major challenges of a power grid and their solutions

Electricity is a powerful thing, but it is necessary that the amount of electricity in the grid corresponds with actual consumption needs. The amount of green energy generated in 2019 represented 27 % of the worldwide production and only 13% of the entire production capacity in Slovakia. Electric vehicles are still rare, but the fast advances in technology are increasing their popularity. Electricity distribution over long distances increases the temperature within power lines and thus causes significant energy losses in the form of heat. The two most common causes of blackouts are extreme weather conditions and time-worn power lines. The potential of distributed databases to eliminate cyber attacks proved to be efficient.
