This book identifies a smart grid, recognizes the business drivers, makes a grid smart, and deliver a smart grid.
Smart grids don’t tend to start out smart. Most of our electricity distribution network has been around since long before the ‘smart’ era. A smart grid is an electricity distribution network with some added information and communication technology (ICT), but, unfortunately, it’s not quite that simple. Technology is only part of what enables a smart grid. What’s also required is a massive cultural change in the way that distribution grids are planned, operated and managed. And the impact of smart grids doesn’t stop at the distributors.
This guide will help you understand the full impact of smart grids and help guide you through the maze.
