Dr. Sioshansi Quoted in The Economist

Dr. Sioshansi was quoted in the 25 June 2022 issue of The Economist Technical Quarterly on The Energy Transition:

“Demand management is a breakthrough long discussed and just as long deferred. Utilities that were heavily regulated monopolies or both saw little reason to ‘modify, adjust, manage, shape, shift or shed customers’ demand,’ Fereidoon Sioshansi writes in a recent book, Variable Generation, Flexible Demand. They just added capacity and passed on the costs. Providing customers with price signals did not live up to the promise market-minded reformers imagined for it. …”

“Acknowledging this is the key to the strategy Mr. Sioshansi champions: “we need to automate things, essentially bypassing customers.” New DER-enabled (distributed energy resources) smart grids are an excellent way of doing this.”

Routledge Handbook of Energy Transitions

Dr. Sioshansi has a chapter in the forthcoming Routledge Handbook of Energy Transitions, edited by Kathleen Araújo. The book will be published in December.

The Handbook recognizes that considerable changes are underway or are being developed for the modes in which energy is sourced, delivered and utilized. Employing a socio-technical approach that accounts for economics and engineering as well as more cross-cutting factors, including innovation, policy and planning, as well as management, the volume considers contemporary ideas and practices that characterize the field. The book explores pressing issues including choices about infrastructure, the role of food systems and materials, sustainability and energy democracy. Disruption is a core theme throughout, with the authors examining topics such as digitalization, geopolitics, and COVID 19, along with regional similarities and differences. Overall, The Routledge Handbook of Energy Transitions advances the field of energy transitions by connecting ideas, taking stock of empirical insights and challenging how we think about the theory and practice of energy systems change.

Dr. Sioshansi has authored chapter 24, “The Emerging Demand-side Paradigm in the Power Sector.”
