What is the Smart Grid?

“The Smart Grid is the integration of an electric grid, a communications network, software and hardware to monitor, control, and manage the creation, distribution, and consumption of energy. The smart grid of the future will be distributed, it will be interactive, it will be self-healing, and it will communicate with every device.”

“An Advanced Smart Grid enables the seamless integration of utility infrastructure with buildings, homes, electric vehicles, distributed generation, energy storage, and smart devices to increase grid reliability, energy efficiency, renewable energy use, and customer satisfaction, while reducing capital and operating costs.”

Andres Carvallo – March 5, 2004
