The portmanteau for this is “prosumer.” This leads to a discussion of microgrids,
particularly small microgrids used by consumers allowing them to sell the excess
power that they produce. Finally, the issue of flexibility for the consumer or
prosumer is discussed. This covers aspects related to how well the power grid

the prosumer, can operate in a mobile environment. An example is whether the

DAs are a particularly interesting case of dynamics for Computer and Economics
scientists, since product prices and demand/response may fluctuate in an
unpredictable manner, thus giving room for research. Power TAC, initially
launched in 2011 [8], provides a powerful competition benchmark of applying
DAs' theory to real-life problems. It simulates a modern energy market, where
producer, consumer and prosumer needs of electrical power are modeled.

The introduction of “pro-sumer” formats, such as S-VHS and Hi-8, raised the bar

producer. Thanks to a burgeoning demand for public access, cable television
outlets for homegrown video spread to many communities nationwide, and a
developing circuit of microcinemas, community media centers, and low-power FM

In ancient times, however, production depended on human and animal energy
for power and thus luxuries and comforts could be enjoyed only by small,
privileged groups—and only through taking wealth from others, both slaves

Already at the end of the 3rd millennium, Shulgi proclaimed himself “Sun of his
land,” or “faithful god, sun of his land” (Seux 1967:46; s.v. dutu). In the same way,
Shu-ilishu of Isin described himself as the “Sun of Sumer.” Such a conception of
kingship, that is identifying the king with the Sun-god, influenced Babylonia as
much as Assyria. Kurigalzu is described as “a judge who investigates matters” (
Seux 1967:66; s.v. dayyānu). “I Am the Sun of Babylon”: Solar Aspects of Royal

The future envisioned by Alvin Toffler in his trilogy Future Shock (1970), The
Third Wave (1980) and Powershift (1990) is a testament to Toffler's prescience.
His predictions of monumental social, cultural and economic change wrought by
new information technologies and a shift to a prosumer economy have become
reality (Siegel, 2008). Toffler foretold that an increase in knowledge (owing to
new, more effective ways to communicate information) will lead to de-
massification, where ...

From the point of view of the con— sumer, an even more important problem was
that Soviet goods were of such poor quality that they could not be sold abroad.
Gorbachev was already aware of the weaknesses in the system when he came to
power in 1985. During his first year as General Secretary, he put together a team
of younger and better-educated individuals and, at the 27th Party Congress in
Feb— ruary 1986, he put the party on record as favoring economic reform. He
