What exactly is the smart grid? Look it up!

Christine Hertzog, Managing Director of the Smart Grid Library, just announced the release of the Smart Grid Dictionary 3rd Edition.

I've been watching the Dictionary expand since Hertzog first shared the idea with me in Santa Clara several years ago. I downloaded the latest edition and I heartily recommend it for those who consider the smart grid an Energy Priority.

This latest version contains over 1,700 definitions of smart grid terms covering technology, policy, global and national standards, acronyms and organizations. Topics include:

  • electricity generation, transmission, distribution, and storage
  • water infrastructure operations and management
  • electric vehicles and charging stations
  • home and building energy management
  • telecommunications and networks
  • M2M and sensors
  • energy efficiency
  • cybersecurity

The Dictionary also lists web addresses for important organizations for additional information.

The Smart Grid Dictionary 3rd Edition is available in both print and ebook formats at
