We don’t need a crystal ball to peer into and see what the electricity system of the future will look like, or how we’ll get there. Our electricity system was designed many decades ago and has traditionally centered around transmission lines delivering energy from power plants. This session will explore the various ways in which we will power our homes and lives by working with—not against—the planet. How will the neighborhoods of the future smartly use, store, and spend energy? What are the tools and innovations we need to make a clean neighborhood energy system a reality? How will we get there and who is leading the way?
