There’s an urgent need to modernize our T&D system in the United States, and the ‘Smart Grid’ has emerged as the solution. Mainstream media usually focuses on the home consumer, smart metering and AMI. These are important components of the Smart Grid, but really just the tip of the iceberg. This podcast introduces a comprehensive definition of the Smart Grid, encompassing a much wider range of technologies that extend to all facets of grid operations, from generation, across the T&D grid, to end use.

Gary Rackliffe (VP, Head of Smart Grid Operations, North America for ABB) and Tammy Zucco (Strategic Marketing Director, Smart Grid Operations, ABB)
