Smart Grid Solutions: An Energy Internet

If you were to visualize the current grid, you might look at it as a star, with energy and information flowing in one direction from the center—from utilities to end users. The smart grid of the future will reflect the way we live today. It will act much more like an interactive web, or “energy Internet,” with two-way communication, multi-directional power flow, and closed-loop automation at its core.
