Transitions to Smart Grid


Rick Hornby presented “Transitions to Smart Grid, a.k.a. Modernizing Distribution Systems: Major Factors Affecting Cost Effectiveness” at the NASUCA Annual Conference on November 16, 2010. The presentation assumes that transitions to “smarter” distribution systems should be considered part of each utility’s normal capital expenditures and poses the question: At what pace, and cost, is it reasonable for U.S. electric utilities to make those investments?
