Intelligent Energy Demand Needs Intelligent Energy Supply

Buildings and the electricity grid are inextricably linked. The building sector represents up to 75% of all electricity usage and is also a disproportionately large contributor to peak energy demand, according to our recent report. The electricity grid, including power generation, must serve that demand, and to do so efficiently, it must develop a deep […]
