These include driving consumer adoption of energy efficiency and demand response programs that minimize utility costs and promote grid stability. Coming out of 2020, grid resilience is at the forefront of utility focus.

Many are also reevaluating their strategies for distributed energy resources so they serve more to promote grid resilience versus destabilizing the grid.
