The climate crisis is real and is the largest existential threat to humankind that we know of. A key solution is to transition society's energy mix away from fossil fuels and towards zero carbon renewable energy, as quickly as possible. We believe that Distributed Energy Resources (DER) are the quickest, cheapest, and most equitable way to get there (of course, electrification of everything is also a given). In particular distributed renewable energy generation coupled with energy storage, smart buildings and other such controllable loads is how we decarbonize the grid. It is the very near future of the grid, with DER providing services and energy to the grid, allowing the grid to remain resilient and stable as the carbon intensity of the grid is reduced over time. Based on current observable facts, this outcome seems obvious although not necessarily guaranteed as there are many challenges still to be addressed.
