AI for Energy: Opportunities for a Modern Grid and Clean Energy Economy

Realizing an equitable clean energy economy by 2050 while strengthening the Nation’s resilience to the effects of climate change will require a substantial increase in the rate of modernization and decarbonization of the electric grid of the United States. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to significantly enhance how we manage the grid, which is one of the most complex, yet highly reliable, machines on earth.

"AI for Energy: Opportunities for a Modern Grid and Clean Energy Economy" from the U.S. Department of Energy identifies near-term opportunities for AI to aid in four key areas of grid management: planning, permitting, operations and reliability, and resilience.

Beyond the grid, AI can also support a range of applications to help achieve our climate goals. Reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across the economy requires addressing unique challenges across many sectors that have major impacts on energy and the grid – including transportation, buildings, industry, and agriculture. 

Download the report to explore how AI can ensure a secure and resilient power grid; improve planning, permitting, and investment in the grid; and mitigate climate risks.
