NextEnergy is currently working with Michigan’s automotive, utility, and electronics industries for the development and validation of charging infrastructure to support the deployment of next generation electric vehicles. This collaborative effort will help us to better understand and communicate the business case for multiple advanced grid and renewable energy applications.
Next Generation Energy Efficiency
Energy Efficiency is often identified as the “low hanging fruit” in energy strategy. Most statewide renewable energy standards have energy efficiency savings targets in parallel that can be reached in part with renewable energy generation. New technologies need to be created to meet these targets moving forward, and NextEnergy is actively engaged in demonstrating and validating new solutions.
The advanced grid is the seamless integration of onsite power generation, energy storage, advanced energy efficiency technologies, and software controls to optimize the reliability and effectiveness of the grid on both sides of the meter. Through our involvement in nationally supported technology development and commercialization projects, NextEnergy is helping to address the technical, economic, and policy barriers to accelerate commercially viable solutions.
