With the rising penetration of energy-consuming 'above the waist' (native DC) loads in commercial and residential applications and the increasing focus on the adoption of energy-efficient systems to fulfill ambitious national goals, the debate over the relative merits of AC- versus DC- based systems has intensified. This study takes the discussion further and analyses key drivers, such as solar PV power generation, energy storage, LED lighting, and electric vehicles, and their impact on the homes and buildings industries (which would enable the emergence of a DC-powered ecosystem). The convergence of competition, key business models, and the front runners in terms of offering LVDC products is also discussed.
