Did a Paradigm Shift Emerge in the 24 Hours of the IEEE Spectrum Smart Grid 2025 Game?

This is part of my experience in more that 20 engagements, together with many other players, in my attempt to get the attention of participants on the emerging, simple, holistic, Electricity Without Price Controls Architecture Framework (EWPC-AF) paradigm shift away of the obsolete, complex, fragmented, Investor Owned Utilities Architecture Framework (IOUs-AF) in all of its current mix of incremental extensions forms. Was I able to progress with the EWPC-AF in just 24 hours, more that what I have done in the EWPC Blog in more than three years and a half, with close to 650,000 views, more than 250 blog posts entries (many of them articles) and more than 850 comments?
Identified as the EWPC-AF_Creator, I played on about 19 of the 24 hours of the Smart Grid 2025 Game, that was set up in the Foresight Engine’s forecasting platform of the Institute For The Future (IFTF) and organized in concert with and funded by the IEEE Spectrum. One may also question, if the massive parallel game itself was successful?
Expecting that anyone is able to see the very rich information IFTF Foresight Engine’s Dashboard, with all the cards played, and much more, like the awards, at this moment, the last blog news update read as follows:

Thanks for playing Smart Grid 2025. With almost 700 players producing almost 5000 ideas, this has been an amazing experience inventing the future of the Smart Grid.
Please keep an eye on this space–  with all the data so that you technically minded people can do some voodoo on the data to see what our game guides missed.
We look forward to playing more with you in the future, but for now, thanks!
**Update – Thanks for your patience. We now have a csv file for y’all to parse. Download the file here! Looking forward to the results — please post them in the comments here, or include #smartgrid2025 in your twitter posting of them!
Trying to “keep and eye” on said space “… to see what our game guides missed,” if any, the longest play engagement initiated by me as the EWPC-AF_Creator has 60 ideas, most of which came in a kind of exponential fashion. As expected by the IFTF, of the 11 complementary engagements I started, among the 153 ideas that I played, only two other had more 30 plays. That I think was part of good focused play.
In what can now be tagged as #Big_Picture, the first play was the Positive Imagination micro-forecast “Consider a paradigm shift away from the current Investor Owned Utilities Architecture Framework (IOUs-AF) and its incremental extensions.”
As can be seen below, there were 21 ideas by a total of 7 other players. Next is how the first 20 of the 60 cards were played, organized in hierarchical order, instead of chronological order. Please hit Part II and Part III to see the other ideas played. Maybe other players can reconstruct the plays of their engagements to respond to the action call by admin.

what are some other paradigms to replace the IOU-AF, or other models to emulate?

The IOUs-AF was a great model to follow up to near 1970. From there on it became a vicious circle. In EPAct 92 an architecting flaw came in

There is at least one that I created to replace the IOUs-AF and the current models that resulted from its complex incremental extensions

This minimalist architecture could be a simple sensor and a blue tooth or wi-fi connection. With ad-hoc connectivity.

The minimalist architecture is not micro, but macro. It applies to the #Big_Picture of the whole power industry.

NO! The high volatility of incomplete markets are mitigated by complete markets. The #EWPC-AF centers its attention in greater elasticity.
