Summary:
Agile Energy Systems: Global Distributed On-Site and Central Grid Power, Second Edition, offers new solutions to the structure of electricity provision made possible by new energy technologies. The book begins by showing how five precipitating forces led to the deregulation debacle in California, including major technological changes and commercialization, regulatory needs mismatched to societal adjustments, inadequate and flawed economic models, a lack of vision, goals, and planning that lead to energy failures, and questionable finance and lack of economic development. The second half of the book examines the civic market paradigm for new economic models and how to plan for complexity using California as an example of how the problem of centralized power systems can be seen in the worst drought that California has ever seen. Offers new approaches to energy systems, providing the tools and plans to achieve these objectives Presents specific and actionable public policy and program tools Illustrates how lessons learned from California can be used to create an agile energy system for any country

Agile is the new world view of systems development. Structured design is being relegated to systems that have a short development time, the way to develop the software is already known (there is no need for design), and the system will not change in any way during the design. Agile methodologies have been developed over time from developers experiencing success by rejecting the ideas of the structured methodology and the waterfall style of project management. The main strengths of Agile

For 200 years industrial civilization has relied on the combustion of abundant and cheap carbon fuels. But continued reliance has had perilous consequences. On the one hand there is the insecurity of relying on the world's most unstable region - the Middle East - compounded by the imminence of peak oil, growing scarcity and mounting prices. On the other, the potentially cataclysmic consequences of continuing to burn fossil fuels, as the evidence of accelerating climate change shows. Yet there is a
