Mark your calendar to join us on July 14 from 12:00 to 2:30 pm in the Capitol Visitor Center for a Congressional Briefing on Grid Edge: The Role of Energy Efficiency in a Modernizing Energy System. The term 'grid edge' refers to the hardware, software and business innovations that are increasingly enabling smart, connected infrastructure to be installed at the 'edge' of the power grid. Depending on who you talk to, grid edge could either be the future of a modern and efficient energy system or fizzle out like so many other ambitious concepts. Check out our blog post on the grid edge to learn more, and register to join us in July for a lively discussion!
