The term "smart grid" has always been a bit difficult to define. So is there a more appropriate term that better encapsulates the changes underway in the electricity system?

We think so. It's called "grid edge."

In this week's Take Five podcast, we'll talk with GTM Research Vice President Shayle Kann and Greentech Media CEO Scott Clavenna about the market forces driving the grid edge: distributed generation, customer engagement and grid modernization efforts.
