In this power-hungry world, people find it unacceptable to lose their connection to electricity. A backup generator can supply peace of mind, bringing home- or business-owners the emergency power they need.
Backup power is critical for almost all, if not all, facilities. Design of a backup generator system and its capacity depends on the purpose of a business or facility. Hospitals need a complete backup in the event of a power outage; the lives of patients can depend on it.
Scientists at the University of Southern California (USC) have developed an organic, rechargeable battery that could be scaled up for use in power plants, making the energy grid more resilient and efficient by creating large-scale capacity to store energy for use as needed.
