What Could Dethrone Solar in Residential Energy?

Solar scaled first to achieve market dominance in residential smart energy. But as other residential distributed energy technology has advanced — EVs, batteries, smart panels, and so forth — has solar been dethroned as the anchor product in this space?

We’ll walk with Arch Rao, CEO of Span, about the biggest technological changes underway in home energy.

  • How should we sell and manage distributed energy resources?
  • Who buys them, and what do we actually do with them?
  • What will scale to the mass market?
  • How will consumers interact with their distributed energy resources?

Span is a startup making a new kind of smart electrical panel. It just raised a $20 million VC round and announced an integration with Amazon’s Alexa. Prior to that, Arch helped lead the product team at Tesla that built and launched the Powerwall.
