From the community
An all-star group of Task Force members have come together over the last few months to put together a really cool project that aims to fill the gap in the information landscape for intermediate-level energy resources. They are planning a range of content, from podcasts to articles and more. Even better, they’re taking feedback! Check out their work and drop some comments in the thread.
🚨🚨🚨 M&A alert! DER Task Force member Tim Guiterman and his startup InfiSense were recently acquired by Sealed (another friend of the Task Force). Check out the feature in TechCrunch and congrats to both the InfiSense and Sealed teams!
The algorithm gods smiled down on us and somehow induction stoves became the main character on Twitter right as we released our interview with Sam D’Amico, CEO and Co-founder of Impulse Labs.
What we’re reading + listening to
Remember that…interesting…NY Times editorial from last newsletter? Well, Professor Lynne Kiesling, who hosted a virtual meetup with the Task Force on transactive energy in 2021, wrote a great piece on her Substack responding to the editorial. Highly recommend checking it out!
