Reinventing the electricity grid for continuing prosperity and innovation

Strauss 1
A Low Carbon Energy System
The Local Paradigm
  • The electric grid has improved the quality of life for billions of people across the world.  However, the electric grid created in the 19th century is simply incompatible to resolving today’s economic and environment challenges.
  • Electricity systems are failing globally due to an unsustainable increase in volatile distributed energy resources and increasingly unpredictable demand.  Managing these constraints has driven up energy costs for consumers and disproportionately impacted the poorest in society.
  • What is required is a self-balancing energy system that enables rather than constrains human ambition.  Through a new systematic design approach, Andrew will outline how to reinvent the existing electrical grid architecture to deliver cheap, clean and affordable energy, while creating a new innovation platform that enables participation on a similar scale to the Internet.
