Energy consumers such as e-transport and stationary applications such as the telecom base infrastructure have a heavy power demand and therefore need either strong local generators or a stable and powerful electrical grid. This is often a problem, especially in those parts of the world with an unreliable supply and/or no grid. Loads from electrical vehicles have to be peak shifted and for a 24/7 electricity supply there has to be a back-up. It is not realistic to expect that the electricity supply will become more reliable everywhere in the near future because of the delays due to costs.
