The Energy Net, by Joe Gilbertson

This is the book that started it all. It is thoroughly naive and obsolete. After some rather interesting conversations with some financial folks in New York, we have decided to use a private financing approach rather than try to push a policy initiative.  And people have expressed interest.

In short, exactly two things have to happen to replace fossil fuels as our energy source. First, a renewable energy technology (we propose solar, with battery backup) has to be cheap enough to make less expensive energy than can be had with fossil fuels. This is within reach.  Second, the market has to be such that anyone can participate, from a watt to a gigawatt,  attach to the market and make money immediately.

Like the internet…
