Within the electric utility industry, the vision of a flexible and adaptive grid capable of meeting the energy needs of customers and supporting the clean energy solutions of tomorrow is referred to as Smart Grid.? This vision for the future electric grid includes distributed and renewable generation, energy storage, flexible transmission and distribution, and intelligent end use customer monitoring and control capabilities. While this vision has great promise, what are the individual technologies that will make this future vision a reality? Furthermore, what is being done today at the utility level, at the State and Federal level, and by research institutes and universities? And finally, how will all these changes to the grid be coordinated to achieve the Smart Grid vision?
To help answer these questions, the San Francisco Power & Energy Society is sponsoring a one-day workshop to provide a forum for discussion and increased understanding of Smart Grid principles and initiatives. This course is scheduled for Monday, November 3, 2008, from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM at the State of California Building in San Francisco and will bring together industry experts on the overall Smart Grid vision as well as area specialist.? Interested individuals are encouraged to sign up before the October 29th registration deadline due to limited space.
