Bridget Woodman of Exeter Energy Policy Group and Laura Sandys of Challenging Ideas put forward the spider chart above to demonstrate how the electricity industry is (dis)organised.
What if consumers could operate in a transparent and market-oriented model? Would we see more rational buying decisions throughout the system?
Or could we even see the time when the electricity system operated with no burden on the taxpayer, appropriate levels of reliability and at progressively lower levels of carbon output that put our current performance to shame? Would the "trilemma" become an obsolete concept?
There are those who think so.
I hope they are right!
For the time being, keep time shifting away from the peak!
