100 % (or very close) renewable economy 0 B. Ellard This will be the theme for the economics division. Innovation in the storage, big data software and predictive analytics spaces are making a 100% renewable energy sector possible. Let's not get caught up in "100%" per say, I think we would all be happy with a 90% number? As a designer of remote solar micro-grids, getting that last 10% can be extremely wasteful and expensive. Here are some of the dynamics to move us closer to the 100%: 1) Cheaper and cheaper solar and wind. Already below 3 cents per KWH. 2) Finally competition and mass manufacturing in the energy storage space. 3) Really smart grid big data software, with real time price signals, smart fully automated demand response, demand side management and energy efficiency. 4) The new EV economy, with ability for smart software, for distributed storage. 5) The increased cost of pollution, coal, natural gas and oil.   Let me know your thought and let start the conversation!
