96 – Distributed Energy Resources: decarbonization linchpins hiding in plain sight
This week, Chris and Johan were joined by Seth Frader-Thompson, founder and president of EnergyHub. We talked about how decarbonizing the US power system by 2035 will require massive load flexibility – on the order of 500 GW. To get there, we need distributed energy resources in nearly every living room and garage to be part of virtual power plants. The key? Building customer-centric flexibility programs that deliver grid reliability, reduce costs for customers, and enable the clean energy transition.
