What we're learning from Europe's first campus-wide microgrid (think cogen)

smart grid, modern grid, smart grid technology, microgrids, combined heat and power, cogeneration, smart grid R&D, smart grid projects
Europe has taken microgrids on a different path with its first campus-wide system at Italy’s University of Genoa. It incorporates renewables and storage as American microgrids do, but also features cogeneration, a technology that’s far less common in the U.S. than it is in Europe. The project is worth following because there could be much to learn from it.

IoT gets a boost from Cisco in Barcelona (and more smart grid developments)

smart grid, modern grid, smart grid technology, smart grid projects, smart grid companies, smart grid vendors
This week’s collection of smart grid wins makes up for its brevity with a healthy dose of variety, from IoT and transmission to metering, a new partnership on cybersecurity and grants for community microgrids in California.

Industry to Obama: We're BEGGING you for a national energy policy (and here's what should be in it)

smart grid, modern grid, smart grid technology, policy and regulation, national energy policy, National Electrical Manufacturers Association, NEMA
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association is afraid DOE’s Quadrennial Energy Review, the closest thing the U.S. has to a national energy policy, will be a bust unless it yields more than a collection of unfocused ideas. Click to read some of the association’s nuts and bolts smart grid-related recommendations.

Utilities: Borrow from this "civilized" approach to distributed generation

smart grid, modern grid, smart grid technology, distributed generation, renewables, strategy, electric utilities
The heated debate and contention over distributed generation, rooftop solar for example, has resulted in stakeholders taking sides and pounding each other rather than working to solve the problem. The Critical Consumers Issues Forum has released a report that outlines principles for an alternative: collaborative ways to resolve energy challenges, a “civilized” way of doing it.

Smart meters are a "time bomb" for utilities, warns insurance expert

smart grid, modern grid, smart grid technology, smart meters, smart meter insurance, smart grid trends, electric utilities
You would think just about every smart meter wrinkle has been discussed, dissected and considered by now. But the insurance industry has another one utilities may have to deal with: insurers are starting to worry about cyberattacks. And one insurer says coverage for cyberattack losses is generally not provided by the energy insurance market.

smart grid, modern grid, smart grid technology, energy efficiency, smart meters, electric utilities
A revealing report from a Texas regional energy efficiency advocacy group outlines the state’s achievements, its shortcomings and how far it has to go to fully mine the value available from smart meters. And it offers very useful ideas utilities in every state can learn from.

Smart grid advice from SMUD (Home gateways? Really?)

smart grid, modern grid, smart grid technology, home area networks, home gateways, Sacramento Municipal Utility District, electric utilities
Several utilities have walked away from home gateways, turned off by the expense and what they saw as minimal advantages. But according to the head of smart grid project management for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District, they do have benefits – for both utilities and their customers.

ACEEE: A very long way to go before the U.S. can claim to be energy-efficient

smart grid, modern grid, smart grid technology, energy efficiency, American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, ACEEE
Earlier this week we shared a story reporting on the U.S. electric grid and its ranking as the worst in the industrialized world. Apparently we aren’t doing much better in energy efficiency either, according to a scorecard from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.
