Lawmakers Are Igniting a Monumental Boom for the Microgrid Industry

July 24, 2020 -

Lawmakers could be a major catalyst for microgrid technology. In fact, many are starting to incorporate microgrids into their climate strategies. In a roadmap released by the U.S. Select Committee on the Climate Crisis called “Solving the Climate Crisis, “the plan seeks net-zero emissions by 2050 through a multi-decade strategy to drastically reduce emissions, heavily invest in clean energy technologies and resilient infrastructure, and prioritize environmental justice and equality,” as noted by Microgrid Knowledge. Part of the proposal highlights microgrid development and deployment as part of its major strategies. In addition, according to JD Supra, “Distributed energy resources and microgrids would be developed to decrease dependence on a central grid.” Some of the top companies to watch on microgrid news are CleanSpark, Inc. (NASDAQ:CLSK), Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), Ballard Power Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:BLDP) (TSX:BLDP), Advanced Energy Industries Inc. (NASDAQ:AEIS), and General Electric Company (NYSE:GE).
