The U.S. electric grid is undergoing significant transformation from the introduction of digital technologies, policies encouraging the growth of renewable and distributed energy resources, and increasing engagement of electricity customers and businesses in both managing and producing energy.  Large public and private investments made under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) have significantly advanced smart grid technology deployments, providing real-world data on technology costs and benefits, as well as best practices.  Deployments are delivering results, yet the rate of smart grid technology adoption varies across the nation and recent experiences have demonstrated that the nationâ??s electrical infrastructure can be susceptible to widespread outages from natural and manmade cyber-attacks.  This presentation discusses a vision for the grid of the future.  It will review the status of the ARRA investments, the emerging requirements for the electrical infrastructure, the differences between the traditional grid and the new grid, and discussion of the customerâ??s role in the system of the future.
