Smart Grid For Smart Cities: Opportunities & Challenges

Wednesday, Feb 3, 2010

Building a smart electric power grid will be one of the great achievements of our time. But getting there will challenge utilities, government, investors and innovators alike. While public attention has started to consider smart grids at the national scale, the urban scale is where success or failure will be found. Using New York as a living laboratory, this conference will explore what it would take for a smart city to construct a smart grid.
