Abstract: The discussions around the unsustainability of the dominant socio-economicstructures have yet to produce solutions to address the escalating problems weface as a species. Such discussions, this paper argues, are hindered by thelimited scope of the proposed solutions within a business-as-usual context aswell as by the underlying technological rationale upon which these solutionsare developed. In this paper, we conceptualize a radical sustainablealternative to the energy conundrum based on an emerging mode of production anda commons-based political economy. We propose a commons-oriented EnergyInternet as a potential system for energy production and consumption, which maybe better suited to tackle the current issues society faces. We conclude byreferring to some of the challenges that the implementation of such a proposalwould entail.
