Ten years ago, John Naisbitt wrote the best-selling
book, "Megatrends." There was one section
headlined, "World peace through world trade."
He went on the say that trade engenders trust and
cooperation, as a mutually beneficial relationship.
The energy grid that crosses political borders
provides a continuous trading of electricity between
neighbors. This is not a dependency, but a mutual
beneficial interdependency between nations where
excess energy can be instantly sold or bought between
willing customers and suppliers. This power flow
can go both ways as demand for energy changes by
the hour, often switching the direction of electric
flow to level daytime peak and valleys in demand.
If there is an opportunity to save money or make
it, capitalism will move us in that direction. When
you have an technology option that's better economically
and environmentally, then older, expensive and polluting
technologies will be phased out.
The development of energy grids across borders
allows for the economic exchange of power, emergency
back-up reserve for operators and the tapping of
large scale renewable energy resources. It's a win-win
deal for both nations.
