The Smart Grid uses 21st century information technology to enable efficient delivery of electricity from suppliers to businesses and consumers, reliably and securely, while allowing increased use of renewable power sources. Smart energy management systems, coupled with the advanced smart grid infrastructure, enable two-way digital communication between utility companies and common household devices such as smart thermostats, appliances, utility meters, security systems, electric vehicles and more. Communication can be used to control appliances, save energy, reduce costs and increase reliability and transparency.
