Abstract

The energy systems of today have developed gradually over the past 100 years or more. This evolutionary process has created energy systems based primarily on central production units which deliver electricity through transmission lines, from there to distribution networks, and finally to end-users. Future energy systems will have to be much more sophisticated, with both central and decentralised generating units intelligently linked to end-users. This will take decades to achieve in industrialised countries. Intelligent energy systems could be developed more rapidly in developing countries with fast-growing economies, as these countries have to invest in a new infrastructure. New energy supply technologies such as photovoltaics, and new highly efficient end-uses, are certain to influence the economics and sustainability of energy systems. However, the implications of technological development on the supply and use of energy, and on the enabling technologies used by future energy systems, are still uncertain. (LN)
