grid delivers electricity from suppliers to consumers using digital technology
communications to control appliances at consumers' homes to save energy, reduce
cost and increase
reliability and transparency. It overlays the electrical grid with an
information and net metering system.
modernized electricity network is being promoted by many governments as a way of
independence, global warming and emergency resilience issues.
grid is made possible by applying sensing, measurement and control devices with
communications to electricity production, transmission, distribution and
consumption parts of the power
communicate information about grid condition to system users, operators and
making it possible to dynamically respond to changes in grid condition.
