Smart grids: electric utilities’ challenges and opportunities (thoughts on the UCLA WINMEC Smart Grid Forum)

If you haven’t already, you will hear more and more about smart grids, as the nation’s electric utilities plan to overhaul and modernize their existing grid system in order to better monitor their ageing infrastructure, and also to plan ahead for integration of new sources of energy (solar and wind) as well as disruptive new sources of consumption (electric vehicles).

On Monday May 17th, I attended a smart grid forum at UCLA, and the editors of, a major online information and news portal on various sectors, asked me to guest-write an article for them.

Enjoy! I’ll write more about smart grids in the future, so if you're interested in this topic, feel free to subscribe here.
