The question “Can Technology Save the Economy?” was wisely reinterpreted by Bill Sweet as “Can the Stimulus Bill both Stimulate and Transform?” in the IEEE Spectrum’s Energy Wise Blog. Such a reinterpretation and my post under markm@kyield.com’s commentIncremental innovation (controlled by entrenched) led me to comprehend that reform “transformation” (incremental innovation controlled by IOUs) is just not going to work.

As IOUs keep entrenched, the only way out to introduce the overdue fundamental structural radical “transformation” is spelled out by M.I.T. professor Peter Senge el al in their book “The Necessary Revolution: How Individuals and Organizations Are Working Together to Create a Sustainable World.” Thus the latest EWPC article posted is Can EPRI Professionals Get Out of the IOUs Box to Join the EWPC Necessary Revolution?

How can you possibly continually talk about "entrenched" IOUs when the power sector in the US and Canada has gone through such a massive transformation over the past decade or so?
