From Manual Grid to Smart Grid


From October 31 to November 5, world leaders, environmentalists, and industry leaders convened in Glasgow, Scotland, to discuss the climate crisis and the initiatives they can take to avert a 2ºC (about 3.6°F) increase in global temperatures at the United Nations Climate Change Conference. Clearly, solutions will be needed across a range of industries, but the telecom sector and utility companies are making their own contributions to these goals.

The telecom sector’s and utility companies’ main objectives main objectives are (1) to more efficiently reduce the consumption of natural resources, including energy supplies; (2) to reduce the emission of global-warming gases; and (3) to ensure that power supplies are efficiently allocated. The latter is particularly important as a country may rely on intermittent energy supplies—such as wind, solar, or tidal power—alongside nuclear and more disapproved-of sources of power such as coal, oil, and even gas.
