    The Future of Energy: Decarbonization & decentralization

    Presentation Decarbonization Pathways
    Our electricity system continues to evolve with the infusion of new technology, demand for cleaner energy, and the growing popularity of distributed energy. Meanwhile, state and territorial governments are increasingly calling for carbon-free electricity and consumers are demanding cheaper, cleaner energy that they can always rely on. As storage and connected smart homes become more prevalent, they turn homes into nanogrids and homeowners into electric market participants. How do the two megatrends of energy decarbonization and decentralization intersect and how are they changing the way we consume energy and the way we interact with the market for electricity?
