The Cisco Connected Grid
Shaping the Future of Energy
The electricity industry is at a tipping point, where the pace of change and opportunity for disruption is accelerating. Thirty years of energy policy and industry structural changes are combining with accelerating social and technological evolution. This combination creates significant pressure for fundamental changes in the electrical industry regarding design, operation, structure, and regulation.
Effective business and public policy strategies to help transform the global electrical industry require alignment of policy, economics, and technology. Cisco calls the interrelationship of these factors “Gridonomics.”
