Nikola Tesla will be laughing last

The DC electricity-powered air conditioner that Sharp showed to reporters in June 2011 [Click to enlarge image] Sharp Corp aims to release an air conditioner powered by direct-current (DC) electricity within 2015. The company made the comment in response to a question by Nikkei Electronics. The air conditioner will be released as the first product in its "DC Appliance" series. Sharp announced in 2011 that it was developing DC electricity-powered home appliances. The DC Appliance is expected to be combined with solar panels by using DC solar electricity without converting it to alternating-current (AC) electricity. As a result, a conversion loss of about 5-10% can be eliminated. Sharp plans to show the new technology at PVJapan 2015, which will take place from July 29 to 31, 2015.
