Distributed production

The idea of a radical decentering of formerly centralised production is recasting many services. In energy services, for example, localised energy systems are re-appearing, linked both to domestic energy generation through renewables or micro combined heat and power, and through the development of community trigeneration systems such as those in Woking and London. There are similar patterns emerging in health (the home as hospital), education (online learning) and care.
