Getting to the Grid


Prototypes of new energy technology are abundant, but very few make it to the grid and see real-world application.

Getting to the grid requires a deep process of de-risking and vetting a technology by myriad stakeholders; the vetting process is complex and capital-intensive, and requires the right partners at the right time.

For Sunfolding, the California Energy Commission’s EPIC Program was a critical partner to get our technology to the grid and poised for impact.

California’s progressive policy and investment programs, like the EPIC program, are vital bridges for energy innovation to see the light of day and keep California on the leading edge of the clean energy transition.
