Join us in this one-day workshop which provides a systems view of how the Smart Grid provides interactions between the end uses of electricity (“appliances” or industrial processes) and utilities, viewed from the perspective of the technologies, standards, and policies that will enable those interactions and foster innovation and interoperability.
The Smart Grid marries the electrical grid â?? an extremely complex system based on mature, conservative technology â?? with two fast moving innovative technologies: computers and communications.? It is one of the greatest (if not the greatest) electrical, electronic and information processing challenges of our time and represents a significant engineering opportunity over the next two decades and beyond.? It captures information about supply, system demand, individual usage, and pricing that fundamentally shifts how electricity is used.? It enables the operators of the power system to increase efficiency and reliability while reducing costs and empowering consumers of electricity to minimize their own electricity costs.
