What is the Smart Grid?


Our Smart Grid definition unites the Utility Grid,
Buildings and Vehicles into one grid.



Smart Grid = Electric Grid + Communications Network
+ Hardware + Software



The Smart Grid monitors, controls, and manages the
creation, distribution and consumption of energy.



The Smart Grid of the future is distributed, interactive,
self

, 2010 unofficial Texas Wind Day


Austin Energy currently generates approximately 13% of its
power via Wind (439MW)


Austin Energy has a goal to increase its renewable portfolio to
35% with the lion’s share from Wind Power (1,000MW)


Key issue with Wind vs. traditional power plants


only as
predictable as the weather


How does Smart Grid help overcome this issue?


Demand Response


More proactive/efficient Grid monitoring


Any Questions???
