The Power to Conserve
Concerns about the environment and sustainability have come to the forefront for many individuals, communities and businesses in recent years. Not only has this spurred on increased commitment to its preservation, but continuous examination of the underlying causes of environmental degradation as well. Technological advances are often pointed to as a source of ecological problems, but many engineers are harnessing technology to provide a solution and reduce the effects of human activity on the earth. To effectively minimize environmental footprints, applications must be designed with power systems centered on minimizing waste while maximizing efficiency.
