[Rocky Mountain Institute]: Eastern Power Outage Unfortunate but Entirely Predictable; Event Offers Wake-Up Call for U.S. Energy Policymakers
Calling the massive August 14 power outages in the Northeastern United States “a wake-up call to decision makers,” officials at the twenty-year-old Rocky Mountain Institute said Americans should look to distributed, diverse, and resilient clean technologies to power their industries, homes, and communities. America’s existing system–based on a hundred years’ worth of heavily centralized generation and distribution policies–can trigger a cascading series of errors that leaves us vulnerable and should be corrected.
In fact RMI predicted this in their Brittle Power report to the Pentagon in…1982!
