bbusbar b tto meter t and d lload d center t

• Enable a more efficient, secure and reliable

electric power system through two-way two way

communication at every point

• Understand that the smart grid may look not

look the same everywhere because of different

systems and goals

SMART GRID GRID AND AND RELIABILITY

RELIABILITY

• System y operators p can back feed from areas

of outage to unaffected lines

• Utilities can see where outages have

occurred and respond more quickly to

restore customers

• Consumers can react more effectively y by y KEY

shifting load to distributed sources and

microgrids

POINTS


SMART GRID AND SYSTEM

RESILIENCE

• System operators will know which

equipment q p needs maintenance and

replacement

• Utilities can use demand and supply

information to optimize their system

• Consumers can have a more complete

understanding g of how they y use their energy gy

KEY

POINTS


SMART GRID GRID AND POLICY

• Ensure Recovery Act funding is used to

demonstrate success while stimulating the

economy

• Create an understanding of smart grid as a

key enabler in any energy policy decision—

renewable portfolio standard, energy

efficiency standard, transmission, cap and

trade

• Produce information to guide policymakers

in standards, cyber security, and other

critical issues
