The Energy Internet is positioned to transform our lives – perhaps on a larger scale than the Internet before it. This dynamic, distributed, and multi-participant Enernet – as some are calling it – is built around clean energy generation, storage and delivery. With a long list of innovators emerging, the resulting innovation will drive massive change, including how we think about cities, municipal services, transportation, insurance, real estate, financial services, and more.
The energy paradigm is poised to change for the first time since the second Industrial Revolution – and this revolution will be no less impactful. This phenomenon is driven by a convergence of material science, nanotechnology and distributed energy resources, and is pushing down costs and improving services.
Cities, mobility, and countless other life experiences will be changed, as we marvel at exciting technology that generates electricity from our footsteps, or the wireless transmission of energy that eliminates the need for cables and wires.
Our panelists will share their insights on this emerging Energy Internet, and the massive business opportunities that lie ahead.
