July 17, 2012
Gwinnett Technical College-Busbee Center
The Smart Grid has received a jolt of interest over the last few years. However, before the Smart Grid can reach its ultimate goal, it will need to overcome many challenges over the next 5-10 years.
Join the Gwinnett Technology Forum as it hosts expert Ken Caird, Senior-Smart Grid Systems Engineer with GE as he shares some of the major challenges facing the Smart Grid going forward:
1. Renewables integration onto the grid
2. The impact of variability of renewable energy resources on the grid
3. The impact of Electric Vehicles on the grid
4. The growth in peak loads versus base loads
5. The challenge of building more infrastructure
Lastly, join us and learn how new technologies can be leveraged to address the solutions above and provide a better economic solution for the deployment of renewable energy resources and electric vehicles.
