Human development: Electricity as a necessary factor

in Project HOPE3 years ago


It is no secret that our life has become easier and more pleasant with the existence of electricity. This is a factor, to call it so, that has favored the development of man, not only in everyday life, where it has allowed comfort and control of the environment, but even more in the field of business work; achieving through it, making available a whole range of useful and necessary technology to bring the existence of man to another level, where all dreams and projects that society can raise are possible.

Under this perspective we can say that electric energy has played an important role in the development of mankind, becoming a service of primary need, which has allowed the advancement of technology in modern life, managing to provide through it, increasingly sophisticated equipment, offering recreation, entertainment, comfort, greater production of goods, among others; but it is certain that with its use has demanded more energy.

Energy consumption cannot be analyzed under the economic thematic of supply and demand, since it has become a worrying factor, vital for modern society, in every sense. Its generation is wide, but complex, hence the importance of raising awareness among the population in general to save energy, reflecting and making good use of electricity.


In the past, for the vast majority of Venezuelans, electricity was a public service with immediate availability; the switch was flipped and the lamp was turned on, the appliance was connected and it worked, that's how wonderful everything was, even in the business sector.

But unfortunately, the reality of the present time is very dark. The wrong policies, applied to the electric sector and even since its centralization and unification of all the companies that made life in all the national territory, have been a total disaster and failure. The lack of professionalism and leadership in this sector, together with the low investment and/or supervision of the allocated resources, have led this complex electric system to an operational collapse, with very few possibilities of surviving in the not too distant future.

It has become common in society, in all its strata, to speak with resignation of the lack of electricity for very long periods of time. This fact has changed the life of western Venezuelans, since they must constantly reschedule their activities according to an electricity rationing schedule.


Now, without straying from the subject, it is important to mention that this topic is a common factor in practically all economies that are consciously preparing themselves in favor of their consumers and meeting the demands and requirements of the new markets.

Globalization and new thinking in the economic sphere have inevitable consequences in the business world, in the markets and in the consumer. Since it is a service and not a physical product, i.e. a service is produced at the moment it is provided, it cannot be created in advance or kept in preparation, as is the case with electricity, which is presented as non-storable alternating current.

In conclusion, the great problems that today affect Venezuelans demand profound changes in the political, economic, social and cultural spheres that will guarantee their existence in the future.


Certainly the supply of electricity and its availability for the peoples of the world is what makes the difference between developed and developing countries.

Greetings friend @yonglerosales and thank you for your contribution.

Very true @carlos84, developed countries don't understand or comprehend how to live with electricity for a week. While developing countries like Nigeria, sometimes, some communities go 6 months without light, it is quite saddening, that in 2021, electricity isn't constant.

Hello @yonglerosales
Electricity has been an element of achieving more progress, without it we really enter very complicated times. I also lived it, and the production apparatus practically comes to a standstill, so it is not a luxury, it is a real necessity for any country that wants to progress.

so it is not a luxury, it is a real necessity for any country that wants to progress.

It is a luxury, here in Nigeria. Sometimes, we go 2 weeks without light, so it is a luxury, sometimes, I won't be active, that's because we don't have light. Very true, I doubt if my country Nigeria want to progress at all.

Hello friend @yonglerosales.

Totally agree with you friend, one of the creations that we have achieved thanks to the knowledge of the field of physical science and radiated to fundamental areas such as technology has undoubtedly been the generation of electric current and thus we have achieved the modernity that we enjoy today.

It is important to take into account the task that the field of technology has outlined regarding the generation of clean energy, that is, from sources other than those generated by fossil fuels, but I think that over the years we can achieve this important goal, and thus be able to reduce the significant effect of greenhouse gases and preserve our precious environment.

Thank you friend for sharing such important content, I really enjoyed reading it, many successes. Best regards.

Electricity is important like food. If we talk about old time then that time people can stay without electricity but now it is not possible. It is primary thing.

Electricity is important like food

I like that phrase, and it is absolutely correct.

old time then that time people can stay without electricity but now it is not possible

It is still possible. I know a community that stayed without electricity for more than 6 months, because their transformer was faulty. Developing countries are really suffering constant electricity.

Electricity is highly paramount in the growth of every economic sector, it is sad that corruption has eaten deep into the economy of some countries and Nigeria is not an exemption to this, the absence of technology is the reason why so many companies are collapsing amd investors are looking for better locations to invest their resources.

The situation in Nigeria is quite shameful. We are blessed with natural resources and intelligent human resources but we are not moving forward, instead we are moving backwards.

Nowdays we cannot live without electricity as we have know it's our need now. Like mobile Phone. We need to look for more greener energy so that we can less effect our mother earth.

Electricity is so important. When seeing your bulb on, you get joy and happiness. Some people won't understand what I mean, because they always have light and haven't lived in a place where you will shout as soon as you light because you haven't seen for over a week and it won't up to 4 hours. That's one reason why I moved to my current location, because there is usually light everyday, which is luxury in Nigeria. Thanks for sharing this awesome article with us @yonglerosales
