Smartness and the Power Grid: An Information Systems Perspective

Kecheng Liu

Abstract

The Smart Power Grid promises to not only provide for a more reliable distribution infrastructure, but also give the end-users better pricing, information, and freedom. The promise is fueled by a pervasive digitalization of the energy production and distribution network that will finally involve both utilities, governments, and end-users. The real advantages of the smart grid will be available to all, only if the physical infrastructure of energy distribution is supported by adequate information systems. In this talk, I will review the current state and possible evolutions of the concept of a smart grid, I will point to the data that future information systems will need to manage and, finally, indicate possible uses for such information.
