Smart Grid developments are poised to revolutionize the energy industry. Utility-addressable distributed generation and energy storage will reduce the need for major new generation facilities and multi-state linear power transmission, and disrupt the traditional utility’s economic model. Smart grid and energy storage will also provide tremendous new opportunities for energy users to radically lower their energy costs. Major smart-grid demonstration programs have proved successful throughout the country, and California has introduced new regulations requiring utilities to invest in energy storage technology.
