Karl Rabago is an expert on the value of renewable energy. This talk examines the data backing up the transformation of electric utilities, in Germany, California, and New York.
“We started it, but didn’t finish it.”
“This is the time that’s right.”
“The economics of the central generation plant are exhausted.”
I love the presentation and discussion of the central generation model as being “brittle.” I like less Mr Rabago’s description of the change as transformation instead of disruption. I think that’s a politically-motivated gloss.
