Smart Grid: The Next Big Thing?

There is a lot of news lately regarding Smart Grid technology.  And you hear about new partnerships being created almost every day.  However, several major questions surround the Smart Grid in the wake of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act:

  • Can this infrastructure and innovation upgrade jolt the economy?
  • Will the Smart Grid stimulus funds be deployed efficiently and effectively?
  • How will this technology affect rural utilities, carriers and end customers?

Here is an interesting article by Seeking Alpha about a new partnership between Qwest and Current Group and the various solutions available to deliver Smart Grid solutions.

    I do hope so! I think having a smart-grid in place is like a having a good highway system in any city. It’s going to be essential in the future, and I hope that people will catch on and want to promote it too.
