More Than Smart – California’s approach to rebooting its energy delivery system for the future

Posted on Oct 15, 2014 in Other News

Greentech Media in partnership with Caltech’s Resnick Sustainability Institute recently released a report outlining a comprehensive pathway for rebuilding California’s distribution grid. The report, titled, More Than Smart: A Framework to Make the Distribution Grid More Open, Efficient, and Resilient, outlines a clear path and framework to move from today’s centralized transmission planning infrastructure to a “network” system that enables more entities to design and implement an integrated grid that provides cleaner, cheaper and more reliable energy services to customers.

On October 15, 2014, Greentech Media hosted the More Than Smart conference: California’s Energy Network Grid: A Look to the Future to convene various government, nonprofit, and industry stakeholders to discuss strategies and actions being undertaken to modernize the distribution grid.

In a panel titled, “Regulatory Evolution to Enable Customer Benefits from a More Distributed System,” Commissioner Akiba joined commissioners from California and New York to address current regulatory changes and innovations occurring across the country in leading states.
