Recorded at IEEE Energy 2030 Conference, this program explains the smart grid and its importance for reducing our carbon footprint through the use of communications and computing technology to improve electricity transmission and distribution.

Our future is in the smart grid that will enable consumers to save money by controlling their use of energy.  This 8-minute video explains the smart grid and its importance for reducing our carbon footprint.  According to the leading engineers, business leaders and public policy experts interviewed at the 2008 IEEE Energy 2030 Conference, significant energy savings will result from the use of communications and computing technology to improve electricity transmission and distribution.   The smart grid will involve consumers in reducing energy consumption and will also facilitate the integration of energy from remote and distributed sources.

Among the experts interviewed are David Gellings, Southern Company; John McDonald, GE;  Clark Gellings, EPRI; Deepak Divan, Georgia Tech; Andrew Tang, PG&E Richard deBlasio, NREL; and Senator Maria Cantwell, Washington State, who is a co-sponsor of legislation that includes incentives to accelerate smart grid development.

The video was funded by IEEE-USA and IEEE Power and Energy Society.  It is a production of  IEEE Technical Activities and Sciencentral and is being released on IEEE.tv www.ieee.org/ieeetv and YouTube
