Join us online as Ogechi Vivian Nwadiaru, Phd Candidate/NRT ELEVATE Fellow at UMass Amherst, gives a talk on her recent energy research as part of the New Energy series. 


To support the delivery of an equitable and just transition, it is imperative to study models of ownership that can sustainably promote adoption. The aim of the study is to assess the benefits of co-operatively owned and operated storage systems. The underlying hypothesis is that there is a monetary and non-monetary value to residential storage. The hypothesis is built on the flexibility offered by storage as a demand response asset, which can be used by residents in price-based demand response programs and equally provides consumers with increased autonomy and reduced cost.

New Energy: Conversations with Early-Career Energy Researchers is an online series featuring graduate, post-doctoral, and other early-career researchers sharing their discoveries and perspectives on energy-related topics. From policy to analysis to emerging technology, this bi-weekly series will give anyone interested in energy the opportunity to learn from the rising stars in the field.
