Abstract

This paper explores how electricity systems may evolve in the 21st century. The paper focuses on some fundamental challenges facing the utilization of electricity today and for years to come. Paralleling the challenges, several directions of how new solutions may emerge are suggested. In this context, some new approaches to manage power system development and deployment are outlined.
