In 1880, a US patent for the incandescent bulb was issued, taking it from the lab—where other bulbs had failed to proceed—into commercialization. The domino effect was the deployment of the electric grid, built to move electricity from big power plants to end-use customers. Looking to the next decade, GAIN is working to support the design and commercialization of clean energy technology not only to reinvent and decarbonize the grid as we know it today, but to reimagine the entire built world from steel manufacturing to fertilizer composition.
