Now for some long overdue Good News: Do "Bloom Box" power generators give hope to decentralized power production?

And now some GOOD news...? 
Does the power-generating "BLOOM BOX" 
-  using what appears to be a process similar to a CATALYTIC CONVERTER to  create higher temperatures and better combustion efficiencies for natural gas or propane powered generators -  suggest that the entire industrial world's  electricity grid could be decentralized?
  While this video appears to be a tad light on specifics and details (Leslie Stahl plays the typical airheaded media "reporter," long on "how easy is it to install?"  but short on "HOW DOES IT WORK?" questions)  it does suggest that America's neanderthal era of energy production may be heading for the next upgrade.
