Boulder CO, the first Smart Grid city

Find green business solutions
Boulder, CO is the first "smart grid" city with tracking and energy management systems that go from the generation of power to the home with controls that consumers can use to manage their electricity usage, their costs, and their usage patterns.

Will Smart Grids Revolutionize Power Transmission?

Today’s power grid is composed primarily of central generating stations and electromechanical power delivery systems operated from control centers. However the system is transforming itself into a smart grid that integrates a multitude of distributed energy resources, uses solid state electronics to manage and deliver power, and employs automated control systems. The power industry, trailing behind other economic sectors already revolutionized by computerization (e.g. retailing and manufacturing), will see inexpensive computing power and low cost bandwidth infuse every element of the grid with digital intelligence in coming decades. The grid will achieve greater throughput, thus lowering power costs. Grid upgrades that increase the throughput of the transmission grid and optimize power flows will reduce waste and maximize use of the lowest-cost generation resources. Better harmonization of the distribution and local load servicing functions with interregional energy flows and transmission traffic will also improve utilization of the existing system assets.
