Energy Efficiency and the Smart Grid

Magazine article, two pages in length. The basic idea behind the smart grid is to convert the unwieldy systems, which, conceptually, has changed little since Thomas Edison’s times into an interconnected, automated, and interactive network akin to the Internet. This two-page op-ed piece provides good entry level information but instructors will want to combine it with documents with more depth and detail.

See http://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/es900771j for references, but first URL is easier to read.
