    If ever there was an industry that needed to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century, it’s energy. Since the inception of electricity networks in the 1870s, not much has changed. Electricity continues to be generated by fossil fuel power stations, transported by transmission grids, delivered to your home by distribution networks and billed for by suppliers for the energy they think you’ve used. That’s the way it’s always been done-until now.
