Smart Grid and energy news
Recently I watched a webinar sponsored by SmartGridNews.com (view slides/video here): this group provides webinars, events calendar, and an e-newsletter at their website. Whitepapers like this one co-produced by Accenture and the World Economic Forum discuss how smart grids can be the backbone infrastructure for future energy solutions and green economy.
The US Department of Energy also has a website devoted to smart grid developments: read news, research, and articles, including a paper titled "Smart Grid: an introduction," here.
Read even more about the smart grid from a facility management standpoint here: pricing, demand response concerns, energy efficiency & management.
