Smart Grid Technology
The Smart Grid is a developing network of transmission lines, equipment, controls and new technologies working together to respond immediately to our 21st Century demand for electricity. A transformation of this magnitude can be compared in significance with building the interstate highway system or the development of the Internet. This three-hour webinar will focus on how we are bringing knowledge to power with Smart Grid technologies, while maintaining reliability and affordability and fully accommodating various energy sources. Case studies will be included that introduce Smart Grid technological advancements and efficiencies.
