Engineers have developed a variety of cheaper, more efficient technologies
The development of cheaper onsite electricity generators has been largely neglected as governments have focussed on the requirements of the existing energy suppliers. Electrochemical energy conversion is twice as efficient as the combustion process, but cheaper alkaline fuel cells have received little backing. There may also be potential for small wind energy collectors, which operate in variable wind conditions, to provide cheaper onsite electricity. Highly efficient drive trains developed by the electric vehicle industry have received no backing. Proper evaluation and demonstration is needed of a variety of small scale energy technologies developed by innovative engineerng companies.
