The convergence of clean energy policy, utility regulations, energy markets, and technology is transforming the electricity landscape and driving transformation of the U.S. Electricity Grid to a Smart Grid.
A Smart Grid is a more integrated, information-based, highly adaptive system that will provide greater reliability, operational efficiency, power quality, demand reduction, energy efficiency, renewable generation, security and increased consumer involvement. However, its scale and complexity will require collaboration from utilities, technology suppliers, investors and end users alike.
