Serial CEO Bill Nussey has created thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in value throughout his career. Learning
that the cost of solar and wind-generated energy was now competitive with fossil fuels led to an epiphany.

In 2016, Bill founded the Freeing Energy Project to accelerate the shift to cleaner and cheaper energy. His book, which outlines his findings following more than a year of research and interviews with top energy experts, is slated for publication in 2018. He plans to turn his attention toward a small set of companies that will further
the Freeing Energy mission.

Bill received a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from North Carolina State University, worked as a venture
capitalist with Greylock, and received his MBA from Harvard Business School. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

The 'duck curve' is solar energy's greatest challenge

Renewables require change in the energy supply chain.

Electricity is incredibly difficult to store, so grid operators have to generate it at the exact moment it is demanded. In order to do this, they create incredibly accurate models of the total electric loads, that is how much energy will be consumed on a given day. But as utilities started to produce more energy from renewable sources like solar, the models started to shift as well.

California researchers discovered a peculiarity in their state’s electric load curves, that started to look more and more like a duck. And that duck shaped chart highlights the greatest challenge to solar energy growth in the US.

Vox writer David Roberts has been covering the issue for a few years now. You can read some of his past explainers on the duck curve, and its solutions at the links below:
