Where smart grid meets business - and reality

 
Intelligent Utility provides utility professionals with the tools they need to develop a smarter grid and a more intelligent utility. Each issue of Intelligent Utility focuses on the practical application of intelligent technologies from a real-world perspective through case studies, best practices, interviews with those at the forefront of intelligent utility technologies and analysis of current trends, issues and events. Our features and departments cover topics necessary to develop an intelligent utility. The magazine addresses core smart grid components, including distribution automation, substation automation, smart meters, demand response, home area networks, intelligent consumer devices, distributed generation, SCADA, GIS, outage management systems, mobile workforce technologies, work management and asset management. Intelligent Utility also covers broader issues - both inside and outside of the utility - that impact the grid. These areas include capital planning, finance, enterprise IT systems, aging workforce, regulation, legislation and the environment.
