On the prospects and strategy of peer-to-peer energy

The new special issue of Re-public journal includes – amongst others – a very interesting essay by our friend Eric Hunting on the prospects and strategy of peer-to-peer energy. He proposes that a renewable energy infrastructure must integrate a very vast assortment of technologies and employ a new kind of ‘grid’ more akin to a computer network; bi-direction, variable load, with short term energy buffering and long-term seasonal storage. Hunting also urges for the consideration of how power and architecture can become integrated, both in terms of passive energy characteristics of architecture for sake of energy efficiency but also the integration of active power systems within our built habitat.
