What is a smart grid?



  1. 0 Votes

    Smart grids basically take an electricity grid and and make it well, smarter.  By analyzing the grid, a smart grid can communicate with suppliers to tell them how they can better supply their consumers.  A smart grid also allows appliances in a persons home to receive more or less power based on their use.  It is a way to conserve power systematically, where the energy supply company can monitor the power you use without taking away power you need.

    In addition, what makes the Smart Grid “smart” is its ability to monitor, anticipate, and control how the system operates. It is taking electricity we already have available and simply using it much more efficiently. For instance, it enables power harnessed from renewable sources like wind to be transferred over long distances to supply markets in demand.  Our current electric grid does not support this kind of transmission.
