By Andres Carvallo and John Cooper

“The Advanced Smart Grid is far and away the best book yet about the smart grid. Just the right blend between theory and practice. I especially appreciate the way Carvallo and Cooper talk not just about what smart grid is today, but also about what it could and should be tomorrow. And about why and how to start with a solid foundation capable of carrying the weight of those larger ambitions. Must reading.” – Jesse Berst, Smart Grid News & Smart Cities Council

“Carvallo and Cooper walk us down a path from yesterday’s Smart Grid 1.0 (birthed at Austin Energy in Texas), to today’s 2.0 versions growing in Austin and around the world, enabled by advances in distributed energy resources (DER), energy storage solutions, new business models and more. Ultimately, they begin to unveil for us a blurry but emerging vision of Smart Grid 3.0, or “the advanced Smart Grid”, that’s predicated on pervasive IP networking, tons and tons of data, microgrids, EVs and virtual power plants.” – Andy Bochman, Idaho National Labs
