Critical Commentary

Another interestng article that shows an analysis where the electricity usgae dropped by 7.8% during the months of January and February. From this read, it can be understood how power consumption has been affected across residential areas, textile industries, as well as commericial and service based technologies. 

It also summarizes and compares how energy usage and demand has shifted in other countries like UK, Italy and France. It is really interesting to see that some countries found these shifts to be normal as they expected these with the weather conditions.
