The pressing need for a smarter and greener grid is obvious, but how this goal should be achieved is much less clear. This book clearly defines the environmental promise of the smart grid and describes the policies necessary for fully achieving the environmental benefits of the digital energy revolution.


* Deciphers the muddled "information" from industry leaders and policymakers about 21st-century energy technology, enabling readers to understand how a smart grid can be a cost-effective tool to benefit the climate

* Provides detailed information from case studies of six early smart grid leaders to showcase the strengths and weaknesses of these programs

* Identifies the legal and regulatory challenges that could prevent the successful implementation of a smart electric grid, making it clear that the issues are not purely technological

* Serves ideally as a primary text for courses on smart grid technology and policy as well as a resource for graduate-level research for energy policy or climate change policy courses

"Overall, this book provides a smart and thorough overview of a critical infrastructure under development. . . . In this text,the authors provide an analysis and examples of the co-evolutionof the technical and social components of the electricity system and the text will be useful for both practitioners and academics. By situating the development of smart grid technologies in the context of major legal and policy challenges, the authors challenge the reader to examine the interplay between societal goals, technology development, and the real challenges of implementation." - Energy Research & Social Science
