White Paper - How Prosumers Leverage 4 Technologies for Greener, Reliable, Economical Energy

Version 2

    As the global energy landscape continues to evolve, the proactive energy consumer, or ‘prosumer’, is emerging. Campuses, institutions, businesses, and homeowners are beginning to use new technologies to take direct control of energy sustainability, reliability, and cost. Local microgrids are being formed by dynamically managing a variety of distributed energy resources, including loads, onsite renewable energy production, and energy storage. And by connecting the prosumer to the smart grid, new information and control platforms are enabling participation in programs that fully monetize the flexibility of these assets.
