Enabling Smart Energy Technology

Breaking down barriers to create diversified, integrated clean energy ecosystems


In the future, neighborhoods could be sustainable through their own microgrids and electric vehicles could do more than just move people and things.

As electricity generation becomes more distributed, communications and connectivity become more critical.

This future depends on new, smart grid technologies that enable sophisticated monitoring, control and real-time data analysis.

Distributed Energy Resource Management systems (DERMs), Demand Management Systems (DMS), Asset Management Infrastructure (AMI), advanced inverters and other communication and management tools will be critical as utilities help create the grid of the future.

This future smart grid must include the customer. The Internet of Things (IoT) and the connected home are here today and utilities must understand how to leverage these powerful tools as part of their smart transition to a clean energy future.
