The unrelenting treadmill of Moore’s Law steadily makes electronic components more powerful even as it makes them smaller and more economical. This has revolutionized electronics, telecommunications and information technologies. It will do the same for smart meters that will be supplanted by advanced intelligent electronic devices (IEDs), just as telephones have. They will do much more than measure, record and report consumption and limited end-point data about the distribution system. Meters will become integral to grid intelligence and control in ways not yet fully recognized in smart grid discussions. While this will provide many benefits, it will also have implications that utilities should be preparing for. Read more

The envisioned, next-generation smart grid is an evolution that builds on decades of accumulated engineering lessons learned to make the ways that we deliver and receive electricity more intelligent, robust and reliable. But utilities, industry, policymakers and even consumers must not underestimate what is being undertaken here. The smart grid is not just a next step; it’s an interrelated range of steps—and, sometimes, leaps—that are all pointed toward the same set of revolutionary goals. Read more
