Integrated Networks for Electricity
Exploring the flow of electricity, information, and money in advanced power networks

Workshop: Toward the Smart Grid
Friday, January 20, 2012
Lehigh University   |    Mountaintop Campus
Iacocca Hall            |     Wood Dining Room


Over the coming decades, the development of systems that predict and intelligently respond to the electricity needs of individuals, industries, and entire societies will reshape the energy landscape. The success of this so-called "smart grid" relies upon a seamless and secure confluence of three interrelated flows among suppliers, distributors, and consumers of electrical power:

  • electricity itself;
  • information related to pricing, availability, and real-time network conditions; and,
  • associated financial and transactional data.

This workshop will bring together experts to discuss the future of electricity networks from each of these perspectives, and the research needed to light the way. It is open to all members of the community interested in learning about the smart grid's significance to our global future and Lehigh's emerging focus in Integrated Networks for Electrical, Information and Financial Flows.
