Google backed green tech start up Transphorm could enable significant energy savings across the grid

According to the company “More than 10% of all electricity is ultimately lost due to conversion inefficiencies. The scale of this loss exceeds the world’s entire supply of renewable generation by an order of magnitude. Every electron comes with a hidden cost. As power is switched and balanced to meet the demands of our modern electrical systems and devices, countless terawatt-hours are lost as heat. In fact, inefficient power conversion wastes tens of billions of dollars every year. Transphorm is redefining power conversion. Leveraging breakthroughs in modern materials and unmatched expertise, Transphorm’s ultra-efficient power modules eliminate up to 90% of all electric conversion losses.
