The electric power industry is rapidly moving beyond the smart meter to that of an information-rich networked grid. Between 2010 and 2020, power grids around the globe will be transformed through a series of stages driven by the availability of infrastructure technology and application market demand. Everything from improved power quality and reduction in peak demand to the integration of distributed generation resources and EVs will influence the portfolio of technologies and applications to come. The Networked Grid 2010 is Greentech Media's premier two-day summit event covering next-generation smart grid infrastructure and applications. This event will take place on May 18th and 19th at the beautiful Hyatt Grand Champions Resort, Villas and Spa in Palm Springs, CA.
