A future fueled by smart power? It's possible.
Which future do you want?
The world faces a pivotal choice: Do we harness wind, sunlight and the latest in technology to move to a clean energy future? Or do we stay stuck in the past, relying on old—often foreign and dirty— fuels?
Our climate can't wait.
Which energy future will you choose?
Our smart power plan
Harnessing energy without carbon pollution
Across the U.S., we’re helping break down the regulatory and market barriers to low-cost, zero-carbon energy generated through conservation, or "negawatts," that rival fossil fuels, such as energy efficiency and demand response.
Fostering a smart, green electric grid
Our partnership with Pecan Street Inc., a “living smart grid laboratory," in Austin, Texas, is helping to create an energy system that is cleaner, more reliable and less expensive than anything we’ve seen before.
Ensuring that natural gas is an ally of smart power
What happens when the sun isn't shining or the wind suddenly dies down -- how do we keep the lights on? Natural gas turbines are one of the few commercially-viable options to quickly pick up the slack. But using gas in support of renewable energy requires addressing the risks associated with developing new gas supplies.
Making smart power an irresistible investment
To generate market interest in low-carbon energy, we create programs that attract investors. Our on-bill repayment (OBR) program enables customers to repay loans for renewable electricity and energy efficiency upgrades through their utility bills. The Energy Innovation Series showcases cost-effective, clean energy solutions available now.
