News that the UK could be set toimport volcano power from Icelandhas also focused some attention on the number of high voltage interconnectors being built across Europe. So now is a good time to revist a report Greenpeace put out in 2011. ‘Battle of the Grids‘ spelled out what’s needed for an energy revolution:
- Micro Grids combining different types of renewable energy to power communities
- Smart Grids to balance power supply across cities and regions
- Super Grids to balance power supplies at the national level
In different places all these different pieces are now coming together.
Proposed investments like the Iceland – UK connection, or the planned investments in renewable energy inGermanyandDenmarkare the first steps in what we call the Energy Revolution.
So, if you want to know what’s next for the future of the world’s energy supply maybe you should take a look at theEnergy Revolution report. It’s happening. Right now.
We love it when a plan comes together.
