Accelerating Energy Transitions
The Energy Transitions Working Group is accelerating the adoption of new forms of clean energy, such as smart-grid technology and solar and wind installations. Focused on the integration of engineering solutions and social science across a range of topics, this working group is advancing technology development and adaptation, urban-rural connections, innovation in operation and business models, and community engagement. Specific challenges to be addressed include renewable fuel sources, smart technologies, demand-response programs, distributed controls, issues of fairness and accessibility, co-optimized systems, and education.
