The Biggest Green Market? Seven Reasons Why It’s Green IT: Solar, wind and biofuels are all fantastic technologies, but to make money, stick to IOPS, is an article that Michael Kanellos posted on September 2, 2010, in greentechmedia.com . Next is a comment that I added under the article.
The conventional wisdom that “Everything Dies a Quick Death” does not apply to the whole electric power industry is the result of an architecting “mistake.” That mistake was driven by considering that “industry organizational changes” was one of the “Areas beyond the scope of IECSA,” which stands for the “Integrated Energy and Communication Systems Architecture.”
The result is not only a technological oriented smart grid that considered the customer as an afterthought, but one that has serious security problems as well, as can be seen in the EWPC post A Message to US Senator Harry Reid About a Minimalist Energy Bill, whose summary says:
“Federal and state governments should take the leadership to initiate the transformation of the electric power industry, instead of developing individual symptomatic energy policies, for example, on energy efficiency, on the smart grid, and on Feed-In Tariffs, that are easily water dawn by the powerful energy industry lobby. The shared vision can [be] enacted as a fundamental minimalist, holistic and emergent energy policy, based on the Electricity Without Price Controls Architecture Framework (EWPC-AF). Such policy will reduce the likelihood of The Third Depression by attracting private funding and creating green jobs from coast to coast.”
The above mentioned mistake is in perfect agreement with “Utilities and state governments have not been as active in the rebate department as they could be.” The agreement involved is an obsolete energy policy directed to the development of the resources of the supply side which made a lot of sense when oil was cheap and rates could be lowered year after year under a virtuous circle.
It is only with the EWPC-AF high leverage energy policy that enables “industry organizational changes” that we will get back to a virtuous circle. The EWPC-AF restructures the industry into two highly cohesive systems that are lightly coupled among them: the primary regulated T&D Grid system and the complementary competitive Enterprise system. Being part of the Green It, in the Enterprise system “Everything Dies a Quick Death.”
