In much of modern society, generations of people have come to accept energy as a given â?? we flip a switch and we have light.? We have become disconnected from the very thing that has enabled our incredible technological and quality of life advancements.? But now, we are waking up to the fact that how we get our energy matters â?? higher energy costs, energy security, dependence on imported fuels, and climate change are poised to fuel a new engagement of consumers with their energy use.? ? This shift creates opportunities for companies to engage consumers and businesses in a new way, and requires energy providers to think beyond the commodity they provide to the experience it creates for customers.
This talk will describe insights gained from the research and development of products for consumers across multiple energy sectors, and discuss how we might apply these lessons to the solar industry.
