AT THE recent the Nth revolutioN discussion on The Shape Of The Future? panellists Jack Sim of the World Toilet Organization, Peter Godfrey of the Energy Institute and Stuart Tan of Zero1 shared their views on a range of topics.
The energy system we live with is far from ideal says Peter.
It’s a system that was established 110 years ago, during the time of Winston Churchil, and has been tweaked over the years to accommodate supply chains of the time.
If we’d started creating an energy system today, we wouldn’t do it this way, he admits.
It doesn’t take account of many factors that have changed the world.
Energy is being priced in a way that doesn’t make sense, is Peter’s opinion.
Why can’t it keep up? Perhaps if the big businesses and governments were less invested in it, there might be a better system.
