How can technology tackle the climate crisis? Dr. Alexandra “Sascha” von Meier, Director of Electric Grid research at CIEE, weighs in on the transformative potential of solar microgrids to address climate mitigation and adaptation in a recent article by the Wall Street Journal.

“With digital tools and data science, demand for energy can now be sculpted locally to match available resources,” von Meier says. “Such adaptability will unlock the priceless benefits of local security, while continuing to allow access to inexpensive bulk energy through the macro-grid. In this way, solar microgrids can become a flexible and affordable solution to our climate challenges.”
