The electricity grids around the world are the largest, most complex machines that humans have created. They are dirty and not smart. Solar energy is changing this by enabling more renewable energy penetration that has started in locations with high electricity prices and is moving across the globe as technology costs decline. However, with an increase in renewable energy generation, a greater need for energy storage arises. All of this is best leveraged with software and strategic planning for a world where just about everything runs on solar.
