Learn how utilities and customers can work together to slash emissions in this special podcast from Opower and Oracle. You will learn more about how the last two years have brought a surge of plans for zero-carbon energy from some of the biggest power providers in the world. Dozens of U.S. utilities have committed to decarbonizing by 80% or more by 2050. "Two-thirds of U.S. consumers are now served by utilities with carbon or emissions reduction goals," says Scott Neuman, group vice president of Opower, at Oracle Utilities. National Grid is the latest utility to up the ante. The electricity and gas supplier now wants to hit net-zero emissions by 2050. "In terms of decarbonizing and reducing emissions across society, it can break out into three broad areas: decarbonizing generational power, decarbonizing transport and decarbonizing heat," says Badar Khan, the president of National Grid U.S. National Grid was a winner of the 2018 Oracle Sustainability Innovation Award.
