An array of technological, competitive, and market forces are changing how the U.S. generates power and the ways that Americans interact with the electric grid and increasingly impacting the ways campuses across the country interact with the electric grid. Behavioral and economic shifts are driving a nationwide move toward cheaper, cleaner energy sources; a more decentralized fleet of power generators with growing competition; and increased pressure on businesses and policymakers to adapt to the evolving marketplace. This presentation explores the evolving nature of the U.S. electric grid – why and how it is changing, the extent to which co-generation sits at the crossroads of emerging trends, and the opportunities for new approaches of campus energy.
