The road to a new energy system

Dr Jemma Green examines the past, present and future of the energy grid in a multi-part series published in Forbes.

Conflicts around fundamental issues of energy aren’t new; they just underline how difficult a transition can be.

With this statement, Power Ledger’s Co-Founder and Executive Chairman Dr Jemma Green begins a multi-part analysis of the global energy system.

In a thought-provoking series, Dr Green takes an in-depth look at the first energy revolution, the present-day debate over renewables and new concepts, and the path towards a new, distributed grid.

Part V: RECs seemed like the perfect solution for stimulating renewables and transposing ‘greenness,’ but do they create another problem?

Part VI: Consumers are the main beneficiaries when electricity systems work. But how do electricity operators and retailers maintain that stability? And what happens when things start to go wrong?

Part VII: How electricity depends on swaps, caps, collars and futures.
