Peggy and Chris Irwin, program manager for transactive energy, communications, and interoperability in smart grid, U.S. Dept. of Energy, talks about his work on the smart grid. He says he was in the utility industry on the vendor side and then joined the U.S. Dept. of Energy just at the dawn of the recovery act, which is when the U.S. Dept. of Energy was able to invest about $8 billion in grid modernization.

They also discuss:

  • The benefits of a smart, connected grid.
  • How intelligent controls can reroute power.
  • How weather conditions impact how power is generated, delivered, and even consumed.
