Our goals and efforts directly benefit our customers, our communities, society, and the environment. New technologies not only create more low-carbon options or increase the safety, reliability and resiliency of on-site equipment or energy delivery systems (e.g. microgrids), but affordable equipment with higher efficiencies can substantially reduce capital and operating costs.

But significant challenges and hurdles exist to develop new technologies, such as highlighted below for four customer groups. By partnering with governmental agencies, national laboratories, universities, entrepreneurs, manufacturers, and other researchers, we’re widening and accelerating the availability of robust, new technologies for our customers and for our utility-sponsored Energy Efficiency and Market Transformation programs. And by helping our customers improve their efficiency, we’re also reducing our downstream Scope 3 emissions.
