A Future History of the Grid
“The future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed.”
WAVE 1
Sensing and Response
 Smart Monitoring: sensor networks  Demand Management: bldg control systems, HEMA, AMI, variable pricing

William Gibson

WAVE 2
Clean Generation
 Solar / Wind: clean generation integration and transmission  Distributed Generation: local self-sufficiency for commercial and residential property owners

WAVE 3
Internet of Things
 Electric Vehicles: rapid growth in PEV via smart distribution solutions and smart endpoints  N-Way Smart Grids: any-to-any smart grid enabling automated, optimized power flows and resiliency

WAVE 4
Perfect Power
 Virtual Power Plants: integrated distributed generation and smart endpoints for increased reliability  Distributed Storage: grid-scale storage using distributed solutions to manage grid stability
