Publisher's Note: For many people, from investors to customers, when they first see Joule Case's high-design stacked storage systems, their immediate response is: I would like a few of those. While this may sound trivial at first read, it isn't: this is exactly the curbside appeal that local energy storage will need if the the world is to move from polluting, centralized power distribution to a new future based on the opposite.

The Future of Energy: Facing the "New Normal"

     by James Wagoner


In September 2017, just after unpacking their new home in Sonoma County, Melinda Phoenix and her family awoke to a phone call. "Get out now!" the neighbor's voice yelled through the phone. Outside, the sky glowed red and smoke choked the air. Mel's toddlers were asleep when she pulled them out of their beds and strapped them into their car seats. Jon, her husband, followed in his truck. Within a quarter-mile, the road was surrounded by flames.

She scanned the edge of the fireline looking for her husband's truck. After 20 heart-stopping minutes, a fire engine emerged, and Jon jumped out. He was covered in soot, eyes swollen and red. He'd lost his truck to a tree. He asked, with a trembling voice, "Is everyone is ok? Is everyone alive?"[1]
