How to solve the energy 'trilemma'

The global electricity sector is being transformed by three reinforcing trends: decarbonization; digitization; and decentralization. Meanwhile, empowered energy consumers are emerging with new choices in how they consume and manage their energy use. Decentralization, marked by the increased use of distributed generation, such as electricity generated at a user’s site via solar panels, and distributed energy resources, such as storage, is having a huge impact on demand and supply dynamics. The impact of distributed generation is examined in a new report , "World Energy Trilemma 2017 Changing Dynamics— Using Distributed Energy Resources to Meet the Trilemma Challenge." The "Energy Trilemma" — the challenge of balancing energy security, energy affordability and environmental sustainability — provides a framework to understand the disruptions and opportunities of increased dec...
