Peggy Smedley and Karen Wayland, CEO, GridWise Alliance, talk about the current state of the grid and why it is receiving so much attention right now. She says it is undergoing a rapid transformation, which presents opportunities and challenges, and explains how the grid began with large generators and it evolved with new technologies on the grid and behind the customer meter.

They also discuss:

  • Increasing customer demands for clean energy, security risks, and severe weather events that have the potential to disrupt the grid.
  • How to protect the data and use all the information to make the grid respond faster, self-healing, and to build in redundancy.
  • Two big issues that could present a challenge: workforce and supply chain.
