In the 1880s, Nikola Tesla invented the 3-phase 60 Hz technology still used in the North American electrical grid, which was then commercialized by George Westinghouse, who was competing with Thomas Edison.
One hundred and twenty five years later, the Smart Grid aims to solve this 19th century problem using 21st century systems. And the 21st century itself brought a new set of challenges to be met: energy efficiency, integration of distributed and renewable energy, charging of electrical vehicles, pressure on costs, environmental concerns, and consumer expectations.
This conference will define what is a Smart Grid, outline its main objectives, present how it is being deployed, and discuss some on-going technological and societal challenges that the industry is facing.

  10. 10. Let’s build a smarter planet: Energy and Utilities We’ve only just begun to uncover what is possible on a smarter planet.  The world will continue to become smaller, flatter and smarter. We are moving into the age of the globally integrated and intelligent economy, society and planet.  There’s no better time to start building smarter energy and utilities organizations—focused on providing energy responsibly to empowered consumers. And there’s no better time to invest in creating the kind of society we all desire. Let’s work together to drive real progress in our world. © 2011 IBM Corporation
