Distributed energy resources for a stronger grid

Electricity needs across the world are evolving, and today's electrical grid relies on centralized, finite power sources. Our goal is to make the current grid cleaner, more affordable and more resilient by transitioning to distributed energy resources—solar, battery storage and intelligent devices.

See how we're helping create a better grid with distributed energy resources.



Working together to TRANSFORM THE grid

We believe that solving the world's energy problems will require true innovation, collaboration and leadership. Our grid engineering team uses a unique cross-functional approach—applying our vast expertise in power systems engineering, energy economics, advanced grid technology and policy in the quest for bold new solutions.

To meet the challenge of modernizing the grid, we also feel it's essential to bring together the brightest minds from across the energy industry. We welcome partnerships with utilities, national laboratories, philanthropists, regulators and more to help foster the next generation of grid design and operations.
