A SMARTER, GREENER GRID
The electrical grid of the United States was originally created and conceptualized more than a century ago. Today, our antiquated grid is overburdened and in need of a complete redesign. The proposed solution is a "smart grid"--a developing network of new digital technologies, equipment, and controls that can respond quickly to changing energy needs through two-way communication between the utility and consumers. This book explains the environmental benefit of a smart grid, examines case studies of existing smart grids, and identifies the legal and regulatory policy hurdles that must be cleared in order to fully realize the benefits of creating and employing a smart grid.
Based on six diverse organizations' experience as "early adopters" in the digital energy revolution, the authors explore how a smart electric grid offers real promise for supercharging energy efficiency, democratizing demand response, electrifying transportation, preparing for ubiquitous distributed clean energy technologies, and automating the distribution system. Against the backdrop of climate change and continuing economic uncertainty, setting a path for environmental improvement and upgrading our electric grid with new digital technologies and associated smart policies is more critical than ever before.
