"The grid of tomorrow will look fundamentally different. It will be smarter, more flexible and more resilient. It will integrate distributed local, small-scale renewable power generation and harness energy storage technologies. Utilities can thrive in this new world, but research, development and innovation is imperative. That’s where CUE comes in."
