German research team finds solution for significant reduction in energy losses in electric devices and the grid

A German research team has explored the technological basis for reducing the energy losses in power grids and electric devices by more than half

A German research team has explored the technological basis for reducing the energy losses in power grids and electric devices by more than half. This can be made possible through the use of direct current (DC). DC allows for smaller power losses when compared to the alternating current (AC) used today. The
