How exactly does ESR influence electronic design

How exactly does ESR influence electronic design, especially in applications where power sensitivity is critical? And why do manufacturers often emphasize specific ESR values?

ESR influences designs in many ways, and its found in capacitors especially electrolytic Caps. Using the right value of ESR as specified by the datasheet can save you lots of trouble. Higher Caps ESR value can generate heat because of the internal resistance in the capacitor. So when working with power sensitive systems it is good to use low ESR value for better outcome.
