    would be quite
    familiar with today’s
    basic electric grid
    infrastructure

Graham Bell would not
recognize the
communication system
he helped to develop




                        2
                   Smart Grid
Smart Grid will….
 – Allow for smart pricing
 – Reduce demand through smart
   devices
 – Change consumer behavior
 – Encourage energy efficiency
 – Enable renewable and
   distributed energy resources
 – Improve and increase utilization
   of DSM investment
 – Provide for the low cost charging
   of PHEV’s

Stakeholders are preparing




Tendril     10
         Energy management
• Some stakeholders only
  desire price signals from the
  utility – they can handle the
  rest….
  –   Direct load control
  –   Integration to smart appliances
  –   Energy usage management
  –   Utility price changes/CPP/alerts
  –   Ways to save – specific to you



                              11
Who’s in charge?
                        • Utility
                           – Usage & price data
                           – Load control
                           – Alerts
  Energy Manager
                        • Energy Manager…
                             • Shuts off water heater
                             • Changes thermostat setting
                             • Pre-cools/cycles AC
                             • Controls smart appliances
                             • Charges/discharges PHEV

                                energy information
                   12
     Must be preparing for…
– More advanced price signals
  • Must link scarcity of resource to price paid
– Next generation of load control
  • “Set-it-and-forget-it” technology
– Customers ability to access data
  • Allows customers to make better decisions
– Smart appliances
  • No benefit without price signals
– More DG and PHEVs
  • Ability to integrate and dynamically manage
– Meter data management capability
  • Secure, yet easily accessible
                                    13
      The change is underway
• The change to the electric
  grid is bringing…
  – New challenges and opportunities
    for utilities
  – A next generation of DR and home
    automation advancements
  – A need for many departments to
    work together
  – A need to learn from other utilities
  – A need to learn from outside the
    utility industry
