Smart Grid Potpourri

This month’s Economist includes an article that goes over some of the developments in the smart grid arena internationally, including efforts to reduce peak demand and integrate renewables into the transmission network. The article describes a California utility’s (PG&E) program to install up to 5 million smart meters in consumers’ homes and the potential benefits these devices would provide via a more rapid demand response. Meanwhile, Lynne Kiesling, of Knowledge Problem fame, discusses the article and extends the analysis to include some of the real-world difficulties that might prevent us from maximizing the true potential of Smart Grid.

Have a good weekend!
