Back‐up generation capacity
Net Zero by 2050, A Roadmap for the Global Energy Sector, published by the International Energy Agency in May 2021, states in relation to back-up generation capacity: ‘Households and businesses connected to a main power grid may also have back-up electricity generation capacity that, in the event of disruption, can provide electricity. Back-up generators are typically fuelled with diesel or gasoline and capacity can be as little as a few kilowatts. Such capacity is distinct from mini-grid and off-grid systems that are not connected to a main power grid.’
