It is a wonderful coincidence that the urgent need for low carbon solutions and for the provision of energy to billions of un- or under-electrified customers is met with a viability revolution in renewables and digitally enabled, distributed, small-scale energy technologies. It represents the opportunity of a lifetime for clean growth, for development and for a more democratic and participatory energy economy.
