Smart grid in the US: to reliable and sustainable powers

The main areas of technological advancement, such as 5G, do not seem to be synonymous with green energy and can even frighten the most resistant. However, it is now possible to reconcile reliable and sustainable power with the increasingly strong demand for energy. How do we balance the various loads to grid and the amount of available power to maximize efficiencies? How will industries and households meet these expectations? Our Construction & Energy teams support the future of new energies in the US: net zero emissions, investments in solar and battery equipment storage, wind farms or local production of individual electricity.
