Lehigh University
Lehigh Research Cluster Workshop: Toward the Smart Grid
Over the coming decades, the development of integrated networks for electricity that predict and intelligently respond to the 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. Please attend if you are interested in learning about the smart grid's significance to our energy future, as well as Lehigh's emerging research cluster in Integrated Networks for Electrical, Information and Financial Flows.
