WHAT IS SMART ENERGY?
The term “Smart Energy” refers to a modernization of the nation's electricity, water, and natural gas energy systems to monitor, protect, and automatically optimize the operation of interconnected elements. Smart Energy encompasses the optimization of central and distributed energy generation, renewable energy sources, energy storage, the energy transmission network, distribution systems, industrial users, building automation systems, energy storage installations, end-use consumers and their personal and household devices. Smart Energy is characterized by a two-way flow of information to create an automated, widely distributed energy delivery network. It incorporates the benefits of distributed computing and communications to deliver real-time information and enable the near instantaneous balance of energy supply and demand at the device level.

WHY SMART ENERGY?
Smart Energy programs will modernize utility technology and evolve the electricity, water, and natural gas delivery business models, which served the USA well through the 20th Century, to meet new 21st Century challenges. Like an energy internet, Smart Energy will support economic growth and market-driven improvements in the utility market just as technology and new business models revolutionized the telecommunications marketplace in the 1980s and 1990s. The US Federal Government and many State governments support Smart Energy programs (e.g., the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA), Title XIII – Smart Grid, Sec. 1301-1308). Smart Energy technology enables consumers to manage their energy use better and helps utilities better manage the assets that produce and deliver electricity, water, and natural gas. Smart Energy will result in cleaner, more ecient and more reliabile electricity, natural gas, and water for consumers.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

  • Increased power reliability and enhanced power quality.
  • Improved physical and cyber-security of electric supply.
  • Increased energy efficiency.
  • Reduced green house gas emissions.
  • Expanded consumer options.
  • Reduced utility operational costs over time.
