The ascent of solar in the U.S. to the next order of magnitude depends on solar industry’s ability to successfully transform solar into a reliable and dispatchable grid resource that leads decarbonization and modernization of the U.S. electricity grid. This transformation will undoubtedly involve integrating solar with energy storage, energy management, and other software solutions that are deployed to create a cleaner, resilient and responsive grid. Join Solar Promotion and CALSEIA, in partnership with GTM Research, to learn about the key findings from a white paper on the future of solar called ‘Smart Solar: Integration of Storage and Energy Management.”
