Is transactive energy really such a great idea?
Blog
Transactive energy is, according to the Gridwise Architecture Council: “A system of economic and control mechanisms that allows the dynamic balance of supply and demand across the entire electrical infrastructure using value as a key operational parameter” To some observers, this is an exciting innovation, using financial incentives to optimise performance of the energy system....

It is a sad indictment of humankind that we always seem to feel the need for an adversarial approach to life, particularly when it includes the future of our planet.    We all recognise that there is an urgent need to develop a sustainable energy system, no longer dependent on finite fossil fuels. Given that, one might imagine that we would all be...
