100% RENEWABLE, Part 1: The Path to US Energy Independence

By Berit Anderson & Robert McClure

Why Read: This week's issue takes you inside the most essential and most convoluted tech ecosystem in the US - the electrical grid - and provides a unique vision for transformation that will drive investment and economic growth and create a platform for entrepreneurialism.

A Note to Our Members

This Global Report describes the first in a two-part Action Plan to transition the US grid to 100% renewables.

We are deeply grateful for the advice and expertise that many of you have already provided in supporting our understanding of this most essential of industries - and to those who are already doing the technical, entrepreneurial, and strategy work necessary to advance this transition.

We would also like to thank our partners in this effort for lending their experience, networks, and visions for the future of the US grid:

  • To founding partner eleXsys for its innovation and visionary leadership in bringing the lessons of the Australian transition to the US and, in so doing, allowing us to literally review the future of the US grid

  • To Energy Storage partner Enersys for its innovation and leadership in energy storage and for its commitment to powering a distributed, renewable, and cyber-secure US grid

The full 100% Renewable Action Plan will be released publicly in the coming weeks, but we wanted you, as SNS members, to be the first to review it. We would very much appreciate your feedback, ideas, and thoughts on this week's Global Report, Part 1, as well as on Part 2, coming next week.

Building the future is a collaborative exercise. And you are all fantastic collaborators.
