In this blog for ECN, IEEE Smart Grid Expert Steven Collier shares his thoughts on how the Internet of Things (IoT) and the electric grid will work together. While paying homage to the current and historic electrical system, Collier explores what will make the smart grid truly "smart." Even today, the thought of IoT becoming the foundation and supporting infrastructure for the transmission and distribution of electricity seems unfathomable. However, Collier provides all the details on how these systems work together seamlessly to create a harmonious network of consumer services.
"The IoT will be the new reality of the grid," says Collier. "The electric grid will converge with the Internet."
