One solution to the looming energy shortage is to make smart appliances. Power demand spikes at certain parts of the day and slacks off at others. It would help to shift the demand from peak times to slack times. Typically advocates mean plug-in hybrids that wait to charge until after most people are in bed. These appliances would communicate with the electric company to know when is best for them. Your bill would even reflect this by charging less for off peak usage.
