Flexible energy systems will power the future
The transition to a more sustainable, low-carbon future is accelerating. This energy transition is driven by the progressive replacement of carbon-based fuels with renewables, clean air regulation and the direct and indirect electrification of more applications.
Today, energy flows through the grid in more directions and through more devices than ever before, and although that decentralization creates more complexities and challenges, it also creates new potential. Everything as a Grid is our approach to reinventing the way power is distributed, stored and consumed.
Our Everything as a Grid approach is shaping a future where homeowners and businesses can reduce the cost and environmental impact of energy. Flexible, intelligent power creates new opportunities for everyone.
Global renewable adoption is on the rise; electricity demand is expected to reach 38,700 terawatt-hours by 2050—with renewables providing 50% of that energy.1
The highly distributed nature of renewable energy is upending the traditional power delivery model. Electricity no longer flows in one direction from the utility that generates it to those who consume it. The new energy ecosystem comprises an intricate network of “prosumers”: consumers and businesses who produce their own energy locally, use what’s needed and, in many cases, are looking to export excess power back to the grid. Furthermore, the electrification of transportation, building systems and industrial processes will drive considerable increases in demand for electrical power over the coming decades. Data centers, offices, factories and similar sites can participate in the transition via battery and thermal energy storage systems and grid-interactive uninterruptible power systems.
This will give rise to vast bi-directional electricity flows requiring a network with the flexibility to cope with higher volatility and demand
