E-commerce and utilities
Anything imaginable by the human mind is possible. In the near future with the advent of autonomous vehicles we will be able to purchase certain commodities such as fuel using e-commerce. Certain commodities can already be purchased online using a credit card. This includes utilities such as electricity and water. Some people can say this is human laziness, however humanity has always wanted to do things the easier way. No one wants to be stuck in a supermarket line for more than 10 minutes. E-commerce has made life easier for people with a busy schedule. Imagine if electricity goes out right in the middle of the night whilst you are using a prepaid meter? The best option you have is to buy electricity online.
Utilities that are already for sale online
There are certain Utilities that are now for sale online in many countries. Let us first explain what utilities are. Utilities are publicly consumed services and products. These include water, electricity, transport, gas and sewerage. The way we consume these products has changed over the past couple of years. For instance we used to consume these utilities by going to the local utilities office, however now people can pay for some of these products and services online. This change is mainly due to the increased technology and e-commerce. The most commonly purchased utility online is electricity. Water is still billed in many countries. In such countries people pay for water monthly after using it.
Utilities of the future
With the increased popularity of green energy utilities of the future will be mainly based on green energy. It is high likely that lithium ion batteries will play a huge role in utilities of the near future.
