The Exponential Rise of Computing and the Need for Smarter Power

At Energy Intelligence, we've been at the forefront of providing efficient power solutions. But the landscape is changing rapidly, driven by a relentless surge in computing power. Let's delve into some mind-blowing statistics:

  • Compute Power Explosion: A 2018 study by IDC estimated that the global computing capacity doubled every 1.5 years between 1946 and 2016! This translates to a staggering 350,000-fold increase in compute power in just 70 years.
  • Connectivity on Steroids: With over 7.1 billion smartphones in use today, coupled with countless network connections and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, the demand for constant connectivity is ever-growing.

This mobility revolution presents a unique challenge: powering these devices 24/7. Lithium-ion batteries have been the workhorse, but the need for increased capacity is undeniable. Thankfully, innovation has delivered!

Over the past decade, the energy density of lithium-ion batteries – the amount of energy stored per unit weight – has increased by a remarkable 75%. This translates to longer battery life for our ever-more-powerful devices. However, the trend is clear – with the rise of AI, the need for even more power is on the horizon.

AI: The Next Frontier in Computing

Artificial intelligence is poised to revolutionize the way we interact with technology. However, current AI models primarily reside in data centers, requiring massive amounts of processing power. This trend won't last forever.

The Edge of Intelligence

Companies like Microsoft are already developing personal computers with dedicated neural processing units (NPUs). These specialized chips will bring AI processing power directly to our laptops and phones. This shift to "edge computing" will undoubtedly lead to a further increase in power demands on these devices.
