Smart Grid: The Electric Energy System of the Future

  title={Smart Grid: The Electric Energy System of the Future},
  author={Hamid Gharavi},
Three dominant factors are impacting future electric systems of the world: governmental policies at both federal and state levels, customer efficiency needs, and new intelligent computer software and hardware technologies. In addition, environmental concerns are driving the entire energy system to efficiency, conservation, and renewable sources of electricity. Customers are becoming more proactive and are being empowered to engage in energy consumption decisions affecting their day-to-day lives…
