First it was energy efficient LED lighting, efficient solar panels, intelligent inverters and storage systems and software that must be driven from our mobile smart phones with fancy names like blockchain and crypto mining and when we have a few moments and stop, those of us in the energy industry realize we are in the midst of an energy revolution. And like a revolution, there is often blood; winners and losers, pioneers who found their pot of gold and those that didn’t make it or don’t know they are not about to make it.

Legacy centralized power systems are making way, or in the case of a revolution, being mothballed by decentralized organic renewable energy networks. Technology and Software are meeting the challenges. Companies like Delta are listening to customers; hearing their concerns and investing in Research and Development like never before. And if you thought that innovation was slowing up, welcome to the next generation of thinkers. Our children who have grown up with smart phones, interconnected digital and human relationships without the perceived barriers that enable them to launch billion dollar start-ups from their bedrooms are our next generation of energy efficiency researchers and thinkers. Elon Musk gave us slate roof tiles that were actually solar panels. Imagine clear class with nanotech circuitry that enable the glass to both insulate, let light into a building but also generate energy from the building. No longer does a building need to sacrifice aesthetics for the expense of energy.
