"Today, as residential rooftops become power plants and generating capacity fluctuates with the clouds and wind, a new paradigm is needed. NREL and its international counterparts are ensuring that the modern grid will be able to balance supply and demand while maintaining safety, improving reliability and reducing greenhouse gas emissions."

The new paradigm will be eliminating power plants that fluctuate with the clouds, and wind, and night - as well as organizations like NREL and their international counterparts that are dedicated only to ensuring their own existence.
