In order to decarbonize, states must both increase clean energy generation and work to fully electrify end-uses as quickly as possible. At the same time, adding space heating, EV, and other loads to an increasingly renewables-centered grid runs the risk of making current load-shape challenges worse.

In this webinar, Recurve CEO Matt Golden explains how FLEXmarket Virtual Power Plants can help solve this problem by integrating energy efficiency, demand response, and other behind-the-meter demand flexibility to reduce and shift peak loads by paying aggregators for delivered grid value.

Matt will describe how California has recently embraced this model to address its summer reliability emergency by allocating $150 million to FLEXmarket Market Access Programs for 2022-23, and how the same approach can be applied to other jurisdictions.
