Edison would be smiling about China's energy plans

China is leading the way with a ground-breaking new grid that could have major implications for renewable energy distribution.

In the late 1880s Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse waged “the War of Currents”, each battling to demonstrate the merits and advantages of Edison’s Direct Current distribution system and Westinghouse’s preferred Alternating Current distribution system.

The quite bizarre antics that followed are the stuff of history now (and some pretty hilarious if dis-tasteful, short films) but Edison would be smiling today if he was still around, despite the proliferation of AC distribution systems.
