Smart Grid technology has been at the forefront of global news about energy transmission and distribution for some time now. And though people often think of Smart Grid as a single, cohesive initiative, in actuality Smart Grid encompasses a number of loosely related projects and technologies from Smart Meters to overarching Smart Grid initiatives and much more. Though diverse in purpose and features, these technologies give public utilities and energy companies the ability to proactively monitor energy networks in order to respond to peaks in energy usage and avoid crises such as blackouts, as well as more efficiently move electricity around the grid.
