• What is the Smart Grid and what role do you see your company /
  organization playing?

• Will anyone pay for the "smart" power grid? It appears No one has
  figured out the business model - has your company?

• Should /must there be any standards? How big an obstacle is the
  regulatory environment? What is your company's view?

• So if a Smart Grid is such a smart idea, why is nobody building it?

    satisfy the requirements of the 21st century and beyond?

• How do we go from the current grid to the future Smart Grid? Biggest
  hurdles/challenges to get there? Any thoughts on how these challenges
  should be addressed? How long do you think it will take to get there

• Any suggestions on top 3 next steps? How should stakeholders mobilize
  to push things forward? Micro grid demonstration project?
