The Smart Grid promises to transform the way we use and manage electricity.
You should be able to save power, save money, generate and store power for your own home, even sell power back to the utility... but when?
Scientists working on the Smart Grid say the promises are not only attainable, they're already underway.
80 percent of the electric grid is owned and operated by the private sector, but it's up to the federal government to get everyone updated, secure, and on the same page to make the Smart Grid a reality.
Security is a huge issue with the Smart Grid, but the threat doesn't come just from hackers, other nations, or even mother nature. Turns out, the Smart Grid relies very heavily on the GPS satellite system.
The Smart Grid is called that for many reasons. One reason: it will allow two-way communication between the consumer and the utility. That two way communication is just way too tempting for hackers, thieves and other criminals.
Alternative forms of energy are being used all over the country. But storing that energy and moving it to where it is needed is more problematic. The Smart Grid looks to solve these issues.
