VIRTUAL POWER PLANTS
COMMUNITY ENERGY SYSTEMS
We believe the future energy system will be renewable, electrified, and fully distributed.
The $3.5 trillion a year fossil fuel industry will disappear by 2050 and over $10 trillion will be invested in solar, wind and batteries ﹣ and this investment will be increasingly be in smaller, smarter, and more distributed assets.
Solar systems and battery storage scale down and are being installed close to loads to reduce energy transport costs and to enable co-optimisation with loads: electric vehicle charging, industrial and commercial load control, and home energy management systems.
Large-scale generators and large centrally managed power grids will increasingly give way to expanding distributed energy systems within microgrids, embedded networks, virtual power plants, community energy systems, and behind-the-meter renewable power systems.
