How is the internet related to new smart grid technology?

    I’m not so sure that it is? The internet is spreading awareness about the “Smart Grid” but the actual equipment itself, I believe, has to do with power delivery, not digital communications. I guess one way that it is related though would be that the internet would be powered by electricity that was channeled through the smart grid, and thus it would run more efficiently and waste less valuable (and finite) energy. Below is a link to a page that has many great facts about what the smart grid is:

     A state-of-the-art high-capacity transmission line can carry as much electricity as 

    six standard lines, at 1/3rd the cost, using 25% less land, and with 1/10th the line 

    losses —-  American Electric Power


    :and what benefits we can realize by switching over to it.
