How do we power the world without destroying it in the process?

Challenging, yes, but there is a way forward. Clean energy solutions exist at every stage of the energy system—from power plants to the outlets on your wall.

If we rethink how we make, move and use power, we can change the world.

Clean energy is…

Driven by data

By providing people with information about their electricity use—down to every plugged-in device in a home or business—they can make choices that save money and maximize efficiency and convenience.

We’ll go on our network and see by keeping that TV plugged in, we’re using energy without it even being on.

Everyone—including homeowners—can produce and sell power, and make quick adjustments to usage based on their electricity needs. This distributed, flexible system is more resilient and wastes less energy.

It’s inherently more efficient energy delivery.

Unlike today’s century-old electricity grid, a modern, intelligent, flexible system is built to maximize renewables like solar and wind and lets the power grid perform more like the Internet.

Harnessing sun and wind power more fully would bring us much closer to a low-carbon future.
