combining

software,

sensors,

computing

power,

and

traditional

telecommunications

elements

to

the

existing

power

infrastructure

to

automate

the

of

electricity

Why Focus on Electricity?


Electricity is one of the largest and most
capital
-
intensive sectors of the economy.


America’s electric assets exceed $800B with 60% invested in power
plants, 30% invested in distribution and 10% in transmission facilities.


There are 3,100 electric utilities and more than 2,000 independent
power companies and customer
-
owned distributed
-
energy facilities.



Annual electric expenditures total over $250B
annually (and increasing).


Why Focus on Electricity(continued)


Benefits outweigh risks of not doing anything.


Rising fuel prices and uncertain access to fossil fuels.


Electricity
demand
projected to increase by 30%
to 2035. (USDOE)


Global warming and the harm to the atmosphere.


Poor utilization of economic capital.


Updating of 100+ year old technology.


Momentum of Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility.



The Electric Power Research Institute estimates
that while the Smart Grid will cost $165B
between now and 2025, the ROI (savings) will be
4 to 1 or nearly $800B.


Challenges


New business models are still being developed



Standards for collection of data need to be formalized



Training around new devices, services, processes and procedures is
required



Consolidation
must occur


realignment of existing infrastructure
and assets




Regulatory environment in question



Best practices around security of information and compliance with
regulation are still being developed

What’s Next?


Smart grid demonstrations and
deployment.



R&D to
advance smart grid functionality by developing
innovative
technologies and tools in the areas of transmission, distribution,
energy storage, power electronics,
cybersecurity
, etc.



Interconnection,
Interoperability and Standards
activities.



Monitoring
national progress activities and creating measurable
metrics



Stakeholder engagement and outreach activities
