Developments in energy technology are accelerating, from energy storage to building analytics to smart grid deployment. Simultaneous reductions in cost for battery and electric vehicle technology, along with policy are pushing electric vehicle adoption. "Building the Electron Economy" is an integrated path to decarbonizing our energy infrastructure, using a systems approach of eleven interconnected technologies. It's a plan and a path to achieve an environmentally and economically sustainable energy system, with achievable milestones. Join Professor Robert Cormia to learn about how we can live very comfortably in a low carbon electric world. How will "transactive energy", evolving utility business models, technology, and energy efficiency contribute to this new world?
