Evolution of the Demand Side Management in the Smart Grid

October 20, 2011 - 12:00pm
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Smart grid technology has rapidly evolved over the course of the last five years. From a demand side management perspective this includes consumer-owned Home Area Networks (HAN), network-centric HAN gateways, and a leveraging of a multitier smart grid for a variety of DSM applications. In particular, smart meters enable the consumer with electricity price information and near-real time energy usage data, but they also are the devices that consumers will most often interact. The success or failure of the in-home device is therefore critical to the larger Smart Grid success. Today, distinct DSM product categories are leading to a variety of new technology solutions. Soon a variety of utility programs will coexist with a diverse set of complementarity. Trilliant’s Nate Ota will discuss new technologies that are emerging as a result of the HAN’s influence on the smart meter and how industry standards affect the connected home.
