International Man of Electricity, Austin “DC” Power, makes the case for “sexier” DC power in a video recently released by the EMerge Alliance®. The video, posted on the Alliance’s web site, explains the advantages of DC over legacy AC power.
The video also includes an appearance by Dr. AC Evil, who tries, rather unsuccessfully, to defend outdated systems and practices designed to keep consumers in thrall to the AC grid. But after Austin Power enlightens him to DC’s practicality, the two agree that a compromise between DC and AC is not only possible, but also necessary for the future of the world’s power needs.
