Define the 'Smart Grid.' I hear a pause. Can't do it? You are not alone.
The Smart grid means different things to different people. Some people think its about long overdue grid modernization of control and transmission assets. And other people think it's more than that. It involves the aforementioned things plus a bevy of IT-related and customer-service related (i.e., smart metering) implementations, an more. The latter is the total approach. We'll call it the IoT of electricity. So, what does the Smart Grid mean to you?
