Talk on Smart Grid - SmartSacramento

Jim Parks
Date: 
Thursday, September 1, 2016 - 5:30pm

Join us on Thursday, September 1, 2016 at 5:30 PM for a talk by distinguished speaker Jim Parks from SMUD.
abstract: Due to changes in technology, increases in distributed energy resources (renewables, energy storage, electric vehicles, microgrids, demand response, energy efficiency), increasing legislative and regulatory demands, and increased customer expectations, electric utilities are facing the biggest changes in their history. Utilities can either view these challenges as opportunities for improvement or can ignore them and hope they will go away. Either approach will have long-lasting impacts on utilities.

In such a system, multiple players each focus on their core strength (devices, applications, analytics, etc.) and build an end-to-end IoT solution collectively, without integration pain. Dr. Wu will go over the methodology and elaborate points through a case study.
