Imagine a world where green, renewable sources are supplying most or all of the energy needed for every purpose: lighting, heating, processes, and transportation. Imagine that energy consumers are able to proactively choose which energy source they want to consume. Imagine an electricity supply that is completely reliable. Imagine a typical business or institution spends much less on their energy consumption, or actually generates revenue from it.

It will be challenging – but it may become economically and technically feasible – to achieve net zero energy in a variety of new and existing commercial buildings. The basic steps are clear: make the building as energy efficient as possible through integrated design and the use of energy-saving technologies, add renewable energy on site and through the electrical grid, and ensure optimal building performance over time.

More and more, utilities are choosing demand response (DR) as a way to balance grid operations, lower energy prices for consumers, and integrate renewable resources like solar power. Utilities have traditionally relied on large commercial customers to achieve those results. Yet residential customers represent a huge, untapped DR resource. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) estimates that utilities can deliver 65GW of peak reduction in the residential sector — equivalent to $3 billion worth of annual capacity. But, despite heavy investment, current residential DR programs engage less than 5% of homes and fall far short of FERC’s estimates of achievable potential.

As discussion around development of a smart grid has steadily increased, so too has talk about smart microgrids. A critical ingredient for smart microgrids is energy storage. Energy storage can play a major role in facilitating use of renewable energy resources to power microgrids, while also protecting power stability and reliability within the microgrid. Energy storage technology has advanced significantly in recent years, and the latest technology holds many promising benefits for microgrid applications. In fact, these new energy storage technologies require a complete rethinking of what microgrids are capable of doing. This paper will review the impact of energy storage on smart microgrids, and will also look at a few real-world applications of energy storage within a microgrid.

The energy landscape has become increasingly complex. Globally, we’re relying less on centralized, steady power sources – such as gas-fired and coal-fired power stations – and more on mixed, locally-distributed renewable energy supplies including solar, wind, tidal and battery. While this is positive for the environment and carbon emissions, it makes balancing power grids a much more complex task. Power quality and reliability becomes more variable in output, while demand for power continues to increase steadily. But when it comes to energy resilience, many organizations simply don’t know where to start. What solutions are available? Which are the best ones for their specific situation and physical premises? What will be their return on investment? Is it simply the cost of doing business, or is there actually a business case? The guide will give you the tools and data to build your understanding and quantify the benefit for your organization.

It's demanding times for businesses. Facing risks as diverse as extreme weather and cyber-attacks, ?rms are focusing more intently on business continuity plans. At the same time, the digital revolution is changing lifestyles, disrupting business models and acting as a catalyst for change. Energy itself is undergoing a transformation, as generation moves towards renewables and decentralization, while technological advances present new opportunities. Energy now has the potential to deliver competitive advantage, to enhance sustainability and resilience, and to power innovative business models. But equally, the range of new options available is making the management of energy more complex. Read this thought leadership paper to find out how energy can drive your business strategy.

Many in the United States’ power generation industry no doubt long for the relative market tranquility of the late 20th century. The generation plants built and operated then were carbon-fueled or nuclear-powered, with a few hydro-electric plants sprinkled in. The economics were largely stable and predictable, often thanks to regulation that shielded utilities from market fluctuations. But even in those simpler times, when the market was far less volatile, there was still much due diligence required when investors and developers were considering multi-milliondollar commitments in new generation projects. Today’s market is more volatile, due in large part to the disruptive effect of low-cost natural gas and the subsequent, rapid growth of affordable renewable energy. As more uneconomical and inefficient generation plants go offline, there is, for the most part, sufficient carbon-free or carbon-reduced generation to meet the growing demand for electric energy. There are pockets of growth
