Why Recurve Exists

The transition to clean energy is creating major new challenges. Grid management is increasingly distributed and will require new flexible resources

Learn Why Recurve Exists

Many regions in the U.S. and the world are experiencing highly variable net demand, which threatens affordable rates, grid reliability, and climate goals.

In California, load being driven by ever increasing solar, is forming what’s known as the duck curve and is getting worse faster than predicted. The problem has started popping up in the Northeast as well. Regions with high penetration of wind, such as Texas and the Midwest, face related challenges throughout the year.

Energy efficiency and demand management strategies can be a key solution but must evolve.

California is bringing on renewables so quickly that it’s not uncommon for energy prices to go negative. This means they are paying other states to take their solar and when the sun goes down and they have peak demand of the day we are back using fossil fuels.

Utilities across the country will soon be facing similar challenges if they aren't already.

This is not sustainable.

Time and locational savings, and flexibility is the most plentiful, least costly carbon free resources and must be part of non-wire alternatives to fill the gap.

As fossil fuel becomes uneconomical and contrary to our climate goals we are rapidly shuttering traditional baseload generation and deferring grid investments, leaving a multi-terawatt hole.

We need all hands on deck to fill it.

Electrification is critical to decarbonization but to be beneficial to the grid it will require load balancing resources and efficiency.

In order to decarbonize, we have to electrify end uses like cooking and room heating and cooling.

But if we're not careful, electrification could make the problem worse by increasing consumption at the dirtiest times and making load-balancing harder.

Already, marginal carbon intensity is highly variable by time-and season. When it’s clean let’s use it and store it but when it’s dirty, let's use less of it and use the clean stored energy.

By transparently and consistently measuring the time and location impacts of saving energy, efficiency can be offered at scale to really be in the mix with the rest.

Flexible distributed energy resources (DERs) that can balance load are part of the solution to these grid management challenges, as long as they are valued consistently.

Efficiency is the most plentiful of these resources, and is typically lower cost than other DERs. But efficiency only works to solve grid problems when targeted at grid needs for load management.

These are the challenges of our times.

We are bringing solutions to scale energy efficiency and flexible demand as reliable grid resources so they can truly support the evolving grid.
