Grid parity will soon be upon us, bringing power from renewable sources that costs the same or less than power from fossil fuels and other traditional sources. As a leading supplier of analog and embedded processing technologies, TI is closely involved in developing the smart grid, providing integrated circuit solutions that enable power equipment manufacturers to introduce greater measurement, control and communication in their products. The result will be an intelligent, efficient network that supports more extensive generation of energy from renewable sources, with a safer and more efficient energy grid for generations to come.
