The U.S. energy system is undergoing a remarkable transformation to decentralized and renewable power. Transportation and heating are becoming electrified. Clean, renewable power is growing at an exponential rate and competing on cost with fossil fuel energy sources. Smartphones and automated controls allow an unprecedented decentralization of control.
