How a Renewable Energy Project in Denmark Created a Balance of Power | People for Smarter Cities
Making the transition from worldwide dependence on fossil fuel to greater use of renewable energy is challenged by the intermittent nature of renewable resources: The wind isn’t always blowing; the sun isn’t always shining. To facilitate the integration of clean energy sources, countries and cities are seeking better ways to store and distribute electricity. Essential in this effort is getting people to adapt their consumption behavior rather than expecting central generation plants to bear complete responsibility for balancing supply and demand. Read how a smart-grid project in Denmark is putting power back into the hands of the community.
