When causes of any particular problem are addressed, the solutions are no longer difficult. Yet a lot of effort has been spent on querying minor issues of energy management and little has been done to resolve some major issues which relate to the social impacts of electrical energy. This paper addresses the need for a reevaluation of the accepted role of electrical energy. Electric power should not be seen as purely “matter become energy”. Some public issues to do with electricity, such as the EM field problem, environmental impacts of generation, automation of the work place, and introduction of toxic materials, have been ignored or presented only as a minor issue. This paper surveys the literature on different aspects of the use of electrical energy in general and from specific social and cultural perspective's and argues the need for revising the accepted approach to determining electrical energy needs for the community. http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/login.jsp?tp=&arnumber=500803&url=http%3A%2F%2Fieeexplore.ieee.org%2Fxpls%2Fabs_all.jsp%3Farnumber%3D500803
Electricity hasn't impacted industry over the years; in a large way it has helped to create the idea of industry. Although steam power helped to spur an Industrial Revolution before the development of electricity, electricity's advent helped to usher in industrial productivity on scales never before seen. Entire industries have been created to generate electricity for public use or transmit data through electrical signals. The history of electricity is in a large sense the history of modern society. http://www.ehow.com/info_7852999_did-electric-power-impact-industry.html
The environmental impact of electricity generation is significant because modern society uses large amounts of electrical power. This power is normally generated at power plants that convert some other kind of energy into electrical power. Each system has advantages and disadvantages, but many of them...
