One of the miracles of the modern era is the reliability of the modern grid. An understanding of how a utility operates will not only allow a better understanding of how the electricity we use daily is generated and transported to our homes and businesses but will provide insight into how alternative technologies such as smart grid and demand response will change the way we think of power generation, transmission, and distribution.

I will cover questions such as:


  • How does a utility transmit and distribute electricity?
  • How is the electric power our generated?
  • What is the “Grid”?
  • What is Demand Response?
  • What is Deregulation relating to utility markets?
  • Who is the CAISO? And what function does it perform?
  • What is a Smart Meter and hoe does it relate to a Smart Grid?
  • What is the Renewable Portfolio Standard?

What technologies will have the greatest impact going forward?
