Why smart grid is one key to world domination (seriously)


Quick take: One of our industry's long-time thought leaders believes how well countries do in smart grid could determine how well they do in global competitiveness. Massoud Amin, formerly of EPRI, is now director of the University of Minnesota's Technological Leadership Institute. "In the coming years, electricity will play a much greater role in global society," he told Government Technology Magazine. "Nations, regions and cities that best implement new strategies and infrastructure could reshuffle the world pecking order.  It’s very possible that emerging markets could leapfrog other nations."


I agree wholeheartedly, as I said in my piece "Electronomics: Reinventing electricity." Use the Comment form below to let us know your opinion. - Jesse Berst
