It is hardly a coincidence that renewable power and digital technology have come of age at the same time. Both thrive on innovations that help feed the other’s success.
You could call it utility-scale renewables 3.0. The previous two phases focused on getting large solar arrays and wind farms up and running (1.0) and then boosting their output (2.0). Today, developers are looking beyond just adding more rows of panels or bigger turbines to their plans.
