North Carolina’s electric utilities are moving to cleaner, lower-carbon energy sources. This clean energy transition is happening while our energy supply and the electric grid that delivers it continue to fulfill their critical roles in our society and economy. This website provides education and guidance on North Carolina’s clean energy transition and the opportunities it offers our state’s utilities, citizens, communities and businesses.

Through the Exploring North Carolina’s Clean Energy Transition program (formerly “Exploring North Carolina Smart Grid”), Advanced Energy has provided educational materials and content on energy topics in North Carolina since 2017. All of the webinars, case studies and articles published to date can be found below. Our expanded focus will include the changing energy supply, behind-the-meter and grid-edge alternatives, and regulatory updates essential to enabling a clean energy transition. Our goal is to share useful and actionable information as the ways we generate and supply electricity evolve.
