Off-Grid Appliances Benefit from DC
DC power technology provides more efficiency for home appliances; however, it's ability to be more resilient is often overlooked.
DC-NEXUS aims to build and promote a nexus of collaboration between the public, government, industry and academia on the benefits of Direct Current (DC) power vs Alternating Current (AC). The innovations enabled by DC power will play a significant role in the daily lives of people across the globe. DC power enables the delivery of electricity to remote areas, reduces energy costs and increases reliability. As a media company, DC-NEXUS tracks and reports on DC projects, solutions, and products across the globe covering the market segments of 1) Transmission (Micro-Grids), 2) Industrial 3) Commercial 4) Residential 5) Data Centers and IT and 6) Generation.
DC-NEXUS was founded in 2015 by individuals determined and focused on making a significant difference in the world. Based in Chicago with offices in PA, NJ and MD, DC-NEXUS works closely with leaders in industry, academia, government agencies and standards organizations to offer daily news and articles on the benefits of direct current (DC) technology. DC-NEXUS issues a weekly newsletter and advertises DC related products on its web site under the heading “Electric Avenue”. Through education of the public and promotion of DC technologies, DC-NEXUS is fostering an environment for the adoption of DC technologies in all facets of life, thereby increasing reliability and reducing energy costs.
