I can address at least one issue. De-centralization of power generation, which is not on the agenda of TPTB. This Ivanpah project is aimed at power gen for SoCal. Existing rooftop space in the LA city & county limits was enough to power the entire city 30 years ago. Likely at least as true today.

there was a great cover of a 'Coevolution Quarterly' once that showed an LA skyline, with solar thermal on almost all the rooves, back in freaking 1920!
way truer today...
