Utility companies around the world are making massive investment to bring distribution grids into the information age. Smart Grid Hype and Reality, written by by Paul Alvarez, asks provocative questions about these investments and presents definitive research on smart grid capabilities, costs, benefits, drivers, and limiters in typical and ideal case scenarios. It is designed to help utilities, regulators, customers, and other stakeholders understand available technologies and the changes to utility, customer and regulatory/ governance systems that are required if the smart grids potential is to be realized. Leaders can use this information to anticipate the type of grids and utilities needed to meet societys future needs, and develop the technical, organizational, market, and compensation plans most likely to help them realize their visions.
