The Smart Grid is a network of technologies that delivers electricity from power plants to consumers in their homes and offices. A smarter grid is different in a few important ways. First, it uses information technologies to improve how electricity travels from power plants to consumers. Second, it allows those consumers to interact with the grid. Third, it integrates new and improved technologies into the operation of the grid. A smarter grid will enable many benefits, including improved response to power demand, more intelligent management of outages, better integration of renewable forms of energy, and the storage of electricity.
