Energy Circle Event: SMARTer GRID - Steps and Challenges

May 23, 2013

The good news is that we can do it.  The tough news is that developing the smart grid is a complex endeavor with many moving and interrelated parts.

A diverse panel, representing utilities, major players in grid automation and the smart grid, and innovators in building energy analytics and energy management software, will discuss their perspectives on how to make this happen.

Come hear experiences and challenges directly from those who understand the holistic picture as well as the myriad of components.  In a candid conversation, you will learn:

  • Challenges to implement the smart distribution grid of tomorrow and technology overview
  • How utilities are conserving energy, and how they are meeting their energy efficiency plans along with new innovative rate structures– including challenges to move their century-old grid into a smarter one.
  • Strategies of modernizing the electrical grid and integrating clean distributed generation and energy conservation measures into the utility distribution network
  • How the distribution smart grid of tomorrow is envisioned
  • Critical regulations to move us to the next automated phase in the future
  • Opportunities for you
