George Smart Grid Society, MIT 'Brings Intelligence to Electric Grid'

By Anuradha Shukla September 21, 2010

The Technology Association of Georgia Smart Grid Society and the MIT Enterprise Forum will co-host “Bringing Intelligence to the Electric Grid,” an event for executives, engineers and entrepreneurs, on Wednesday, Oct. 13, at IBM’s Hillside Auditorium in Atlanta, Ga.

The event, announced in a press release, will start with a networking reception and keynote address from Charles Vartanian of A123 Systems, followed by a global Webcast panel moderated by CNN International’s Natalie Allen.

In addition, the event will include the association’s Smart Grid Society Chairman Anthony Maiello of GE, Allan Schurr of IBM, and Tom Noonan of Atlanta-based energy technology start-up JouleX.

The Smart Grid encompasses the optimization of central and distributed power generation, the high-voltage transmission network, distribution systems, building automation systems, energy storage installations, industrial users, end-use consumers and their thermostats, electric vehicles, appliances and other household devices.

The Smart Grid is characterized by a two-way flow of electricity and information to create an automated, widely distributed energy delivery network. It incorporates the benefits of distributed computing and communications to deliver real-time information and enable the near-instantaneous balance of electric supply and demand at the device level.

Maiello said that the company has achieved the goals established for its first year of programs. He continued that the company has refined its mission to continue accelerating Georgia’s leadership role in the global Smart Grid marketplace with an expanded emphasis on Smart Grid job creation and economic development.
