Energy transition, like coronavirus response, is a global scale problem that will rely on sub-national actors to pick up the slack where national and international action falls short
This paper is in part the product of my asking the right question at just the right time in my academic journey. The question so timely for both research and utilities was that of how to roll out demand-side response measures on a grand scale.
As we push for a complete overhaul of the electricity system to end its dependence on carbon-based fuels, we have an opportunity to push for the new system constructed in its place to reduce, rather than worsen, current energy injustices including energy poverty.
