On 1900 Nikola Tesla wrote there are 3 ways to increase human energy: increase the mass, reduce the retarding force, increase the impelling force. Related to the energy we consume to live our modern lives, the 3 equivalents ways would be: produce more electricity, reduce the waste, diversify the production.
The optimization of needs and procedures, in order to eliminate useless loss, allow a drastic reduction of waste, however this way can be used only up to the minimum required is achieved, because is not possible ( has no sense ) reduce more than the lowest point.
Once the waste has been removed, the sustainable way to increase energy is the diversification of the production.
A microgrid is a decentralized and autonomous local network of electricity sources, that operate unplugged from a centralized mass distribution.
If powered by Energy-Plus-houses and other shared sources, every grid can provide as much energy locals require.
Buildings, communities and villages can live off-grid self producing own energy, making themselves resilient and independent from third parties.
