  • Technology:

Smart Grid is the Next GEN power infrastructure that incorporates major technology components like smart meters, sensors, wireless communications, software etc. to improve efficiency and optimizes consumption. It also enables the integration of sustainable energy solutions like solar, wind etc. by sending energy back into the grid.

  • Problem:

Smart Grids reduces the dependency and use of fossil fuels by enhancing the inefficiencies in energy consumption and leveraging seamless integration and use of sustainable energy solutions like solar and wind. For ex. By using Smart Meters and Sensors, extra energy obtained from solar panels can be sent back to the grid.

  • Stakeholders:
    1. Home, Commercial and Industrial users
    2. Electric Power Companies
    3. Governments
  • Implementation:
    1. Develop simple, cost effective and easy to install kits
    2. Incentivize power companies to offer such green solutions
    3. Government tax deductions similar to electric cars
