The Smarter City, Energy & Utilities

With the emergence of the technologies that make smart grids possible, companies can provide their customers with the information and control they need to actually change their behavior and reduce usage and costs.

These smart grids use sensors, meters, digital controls and analytic tools to automate, monitor and control the two-way flow of energy across operations—from power plant to plug. A power company can optimize grid performance, prevent outages, restore outages faster and allow consumers to manage energy usage right down to the individual networked appliance.
