Reaching carbon neutrality will require significant increases in electrification and clean energy resources when compared to historical levels.
This creates an opportunity for consumers and their distributed energy resources (DERs) both to play a significant role in achieving and to benefit from a 100% clean energy future.
DERs are defined here as clean distributed generation, energy storage, energy efficiency, responsive demand, and electric vehicles (EVs). This article examines how this opportunity may be realized through a more customer-centric approach that also requires enabling industry and grid transformation.
