A BRAVE NEW ELECTRICITY ECOSYSTEM
Vicente López-Ibor Mayor & José M. Martínez-Val
Electricity May Be The Driver. America’s Independent Electric Light and Power Companies Magazine Advert, 1956.
Electricity is an inherent property of our physical universe. It seldom shows up naturally in our surrounding physical phenomena, which follow the law of neutral equilibrium, and it was totally hidden until two centuries ago, when Volta, Coulomb and other geniuses started one of the most creative adventures in the history of human intellect.
Electricity became an instrument for a variety of applications so wide, and with such a great impact in our wellbeing, our economic activity and our leisure, that current human life cannot be understood without it. We critically depend on it. Everyone is aware of the horrible consequences of a black-out. It is therefore necessary for our political leaders and institutions to establish the necessary regulatory frameworks, to adopt technical prescriptions and approve long-term strategic planning to face the future development of this industry. And we cannot forget that we are talking about a rather peculiar industry supporting a rather peculiar market.
