Rwe forced into renewable energy provider

The ET business will be bigger than IT ever was, for the simple reason that for an average household the energy bills (heating, electricity, transport) are much higher than the cost of a new computer, every three year. And the possibilities in the energy field are endless. RWE has understood the future and could make a business of being an energy middle man, coordinating all the millions of small energy streams. And as every businessman knows, the middlemen make the most money, provided they can’t be circumvented (like real estate agents with the internet). But RWE is going to BE the new energy internet. The Shell’s and BP’s of this world are going to bite the dust in the face of new emerging energy multinationals of the next two decades. Again, there is no energy problem, there is a race against the time.
