by @ 1:48 pm. Filed under ALL, Electrical/Power

TUESDAY June 23, 2009
Speaker: Dr. Massoud Amin, Director, Center for the Development of Technological Leadership, University of Minnesota
Time: 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM, PDT
Cost: none
Place: on the Web
RSVP: register on the GoToMeeting website

The North American Electric Grid is considered to be the worldâ??s largest machine as well as one of the 20th centuryâ??s greatest technological achievements.? However, this same magnificent grid has grown old and out-of-date over the years and many believe it is not currently ready or able to meet the demands of the 21st century.
Dr. Massoud Amin will offer some much needed context on these topics and share his thoughts on how we need to move forward.? In this information packed hour, he will use data, graphs, research, and his witty metaphors to:
â?¢ The current status of the electric power grid
â?¢ A historical context as to what has happened during the last 10-15 years
â?¢ Pathways forward on how we can make the Grid Smarter, Stronger, Greener, and More Secure
Following his presentation, Dr. Amin will take questions for the remainder of the hour.
