Start your Smart Grid education today. The smart grid is a collection of system-level solutions and strategies that are transforming the way electric power is generated, distributed, monitored, controlled, and consumed. These system-level solutions and strategies will modernize our nation’s electrical system, implementing a broad range of system-wide improvements that will make the electric grid smarter, more efficient, more reliable, and safer as well as equipped for future demand growth.

SG101e examines the challenges facing the U.S. electric grid: aging infrastructure, growing demand, poor efficiency, a lack of automation, and incompatibility with newer, cleaner generation technologies. Strategies and technologies currently being deployed to meet these challenges are discussed, as well as future areas of research and development.
