Grid refers to our electrical power infrastructure, and Smart in this context means, in addition to other things, Internet-savvy. The Smart Grid is the energy infrastructure combined with the power of the Internet.
The Internet gives the energy infrastructure both communication and control capabilities. This in turn lets energy providers (Utilities) manage their resources in a more productive and efficient way.
EIG’s line of Smart meters, Communication products, and Energy Management software are perfect solutions for the Smart Grid.
