Advise on Smart Grid Projects

Smart Grid Projects

Projects that are termed "Smart Grid" can range from installing "smart" electronic meters in homes to completely automating the electric power grid with renewable energy, microgrids, and demand response. Each Smart Grid project must carve out a specific, do-able piece of the overall Smart Grid, with the expectation of a positive cost-benefit in the near future. At the same time, these closely-focused Smart Grid projects must take into account the broader picturre - the rapid developments in technologies, the new interoperability standards that can help future-proof their systems, and the increasingly complex requirements for cyber security.
