As we all know, there are many things that need to happen NOW for us to get to net zero emissions by mid-century. We need to expand what we know works…and is affordable. Wind, solar, and electric vehicles to get to net zero.
These ‘Big Three’ have improved dramatically over the past 10 years. Both solar and batteries for EVs are almost 90% less expensive, and wind power is about 50% cheaper now. And while solar and wind are not available at all times, a combination of technologies enables reliable power with high amounts of renewables. Batteries and other storage systems; combining diverse renewables; programs to reduce energy consumption during peak hours; improved forecasting; and some limited backup power make up these energy smart systems.
As the electric grid becomes increasingly ‘clean’ coupled with the falling costs and growing adoption of EVs is creating a clean transportation sector as well.
Digitization of our systems is helping to transform and improve power usage, making power grids smart and reducing energy consumption and waste.
