An interesting article that in many ways states the obvious. I think though the obvious needs continuously restating. Especially when lunacy like Hinkley Point is still not entirely dead as an option. The future of energy, like telecommunications, is decentralised.

Much of the planet does not possess the extensive financial, power, communications, and automotive infrastructures that are commonplace in the West. This was a serious handicap throughout the 20th century. But as the planet transitions into new technologies, there have been occasions when the developing world leaps western technology to lead the way into a more sustainable future.
