IS-2010-177: The Smart Energy Report

This report from Aclara is a summary for a September 2010 conference called Smart Energy International.  Various executives voiced their opinions on the future of electric smart grid.  Some of the views included: the peaking and demise of smart grid, the lack of environmental drivers for a smart grid, the lack of customer education about smart grid, the benefits of grid frequency regulation, and the need to minimize data collection to protect consumer privacy (“If you don’t need it, why collect it?”).
