A Smarter, Greener Grid: Forging Environmental Progress by Kevin Jones,David Zoppo

By Kevin Jones,David Zoppo

The urgent desire for a wiser and greener grid is apparent, yet how this aim could be accomplished is far much less transparent. This ebook in actual fact defines the environmental promise of the shrewdpermanent grid and describes the guidelines invaluable for totally attaining the environmental merits of the electronic power revolution.

• Deciphers the muddled "information" from leaders and policymakers approximately 21st-century power expertise, permitting readers to appreciate how a wise grid could be a inexpensive software to learn the climate

• presents precise details from case reports of six early shrewdpermanent grid leaders to exhibit the strengths and weaknesses of those programs

• Identifies the criminal and regulatory demanding situations that can hinder the winning implementation of a sensible electrical grid, making it transparent that the problems usually are not basically technological

• Serves preferably as a main textual content for classes on shrewdpermanent grid expertise and coverage in addition to a source for graduate-level examine for strength coverage or weather switch coverage courses
