1. A wireless power network comprising:

  • a. multiple electromagnetic resonators each capable of storing electromagnetic energy at a resonant frequency, wherein the multiple resonators comprise;

    i. a first resonator configured to be coupled to a power source to receive power from the power source;

    ii. a second resonator configured to be coupled to a load to provide power to the load, andiii. one or more intermediate resonators, wherein the first resonator is configured to provide power from the power source to the second resonator through the one or more intermediate resonators,b. wherein at least a first pair of resonators among the multiple resonators is configured to exchange power wirelessly, and at least a second pair of the resonators among the multiple resonators is configured to exchange power through a wired electrically conductive connection.
