Proliferation of smart devices and sophisticated residential controls are creating new levers to optimize the grid. Understanding them holistically as opposed to individual components is critical to harnessing their transformative possibilities.
Traditional demand response programs won’t meet future reliability goals. Linking renewable energy supplies and demand flexibility that delivers continuous automation of demand side load is needed.
Effective decarbonization is getting closer every day. From the electrification of home heating and EVs, to the integration of DERs, balancing load growth is critical to both utilities and customers.
Consumers want to manage their home energy like their media, finances, or communications-- in real-time. Traditional programs that provide insights monthly, bi-monthly, or even the next day don’t match the pace of today’s world.
