Smart Grid Economics
We'll take a break this weak from the doom and gloom that is economic data and try to get a little smarter about a complex issue: smart grid. With smart grid entering the policy arena center stage during the past couple of weeks, I thought it would be good to point out a great resource that would allow readers to get up to speed on some of the economic, rather than the many technical, issues that affect deployment of a smarter electrical grid. Dr. Lynn Kiesling, over at the blog Knowledge Problem, published a good 5-part series that covers a lot of key points when examining the smart grid from an economic perspective. So if you're curious about transactive pricing, grid interconnectivity with renewable energy and the role of regulatory policy reform, KP is a good place to start.
