The State of the Smart Grid
The potential of the Smart Grid is enormous: improved energy efficiency, optimization of power supply and demand, and greater transparency into power consumption. Theoretically, at some point in the future, the Smart Grid will allow consumers to specify different sources of electricity based on costs or environmental attributes. After a handful of years of innovation, how does this vision align with today's reality?

"Our Little Ghost" by Louisa May Alcott (poetry reading)
