On demand-side flexibility

With every coal plant closed in favour of wind and solar energy, demand-side flexibility (DSF) becomes more important. But DSF, being able to store energy or shift consumption, has a curious feat. The longer devices hold energy or hold off consumption, the higher their cost. This fundamentally changes the economics of the power system. When…

This difference comes from the level of complexity that comes with even reasonably-sized software. The digital age just began. It might be a while until we can estimate and understand software projects, if ever.
