A POLICY FRAMEWORK FOR THE 21st CENTURY GRID: Enabling Our Secure Energy Future

You are here

This policy framework focuses on the deployment of information and communications
technologies in the electricity sector. As they are developed and deployed, these smart grid technologies
and applications will bring new capabilities to utilities and their customers. In tandem with the
development and deployment of high-capacity transmission lines, which is a topic beyond the scope
of this report, smart grid technologies will play an important role in supporting the increased use of
clean energy.
