Nicholas Carr advised Internet companies to become more like utilities. In this talk I turn this on its head and show that the next generation Electricity companies will need to incorporate lessons from Web 2.0 to survive in the age of renewables.

Quote I could imagine a smart garage where I would plug in my car and the computer handles it. I could even make money by cost shifting.... It solves energy security, energy prices and job creation...and by the way, climate change. Eric Schmidt CEO Google

Quote The electranet presumes that every citizen is a producer and seller of electricity as well as a consumer of electricity. Jock Gill

Electricity 2.0 • Architecture of Participation • Bottom up and top down • Hackable • Massive routable network • Multiple Sources • New entrants • Open quot;API'squot; • Publish and Subscribe • Read and Write • Sustainable

Why is this important? As global average temperature increase exceeds about 3.5 degrees C, model projections suggest significant extinctions (40-70% of species assessed) around the globe. 2007 IPCC Climate Change Synthesis Report http://www.ipcc.ch/pdf/assessment-report/ar4/syr/ar4_syr_spm.pdf

Why is this critical? If there’s no action before 2012, that’s too late. What we do in the next two to three years will determine our future. This is the defining moment. Rajendra Pachauri Chair IPCC
