What is distributed energy?
Polish energy system based on large, central power plants fired by lignite or coal. Transferring power from these power plants over long distances using the extensive network of power lines and substations associated with significant transmission losses and rising costs of electricity.
The distributed power industry is the concept of small, decentralized units producing electricity, placed as close to the end users. The idea of distributed energy transformation reminiscent of computer technology, the transition from large, central computers, to small personal computers.
Small and micro generation offers many advantages - it possible to reduce capital expenditures, reduce pollution emitted into the environment, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and relieving the national grid. Energy production close to the source of its consumption allows for partial or total independence from the national grid, which is exposed to failures and partial exemptions. Diversification and dissipation of energy sources is extremely important and strongly growing sector of energy, because it contributes to increasing the stability and security of the energy system. Diffuse sources can be powered by both electricity produced from natural (renewable) as well as fossil fuels. Today, not only environmentalists, but also more and more experts are convinced that the energy dissipated and prosumencka is the best solution to the coming energy crisis.
