We are managing energy wrong. Our troubles arise not from energy, but from the ways we use fuel. Electricity may be the key to a sustainable global energy system. If we were starting now to design an electricity system for human society, knowing what we now know, technically, financially, institutionally and environmentally, our resulting system would look dramatically different from the systems that are now keeping our lights on. Changing the way we think about electricity, and making decisions accordingly, we may find that we are not just decarbonizing electricity, but using electricity to decarbonize the entire human energy system of the planet.
