SmartGridCity Experience Mobile Exhibit
The SmartGridCity Experience mobile exhibit is an educational tool that
clearly shows why we embarked on this groundbreaking project. It conveys the
benefits a smart grid-enabled future will bring to each of us in our quest to
better meet growing energy demands, address environmental challenges, maximize
available resources and optimize the entire energy system.
- Learn how electricity is created, transmitted and distributed and
why the electricity grid we have relied on to bring us safe, reliable energy
for the last 100 years is in need of modernization.
- Explore what a “smart grid” is all about. We'll explain how
“overlaying” intelligent sensors, two-way communications devices and other
emerging technologies onto equipment enables the grid to better monitor,
manage, and even balance itself to maximize efficiency and performance.
- See a hands-on, scale-model “smart house” that will give visitors
the chance to interact with a smart grid-enabled home of the future. It will
show how many of the devices on display would operate in an actual home to
reduce power consumption and manage energy costs.
- Discover how a smart grid ushers in a new era of energy
efficiency and conservation tools, while creating more choices for customers
concerning how, when and what type of energy they use.
- View a large-scale interactive, touch-screen “wall” that provides
visitors with a clear understanding of how different energy choices can impact
energy reliability and the environmental challenges facing all of us today.
- Take a look at a road-tested plug-in hybrid electric vehicle
equipped with vehicle-to-grid technology. (May not be available at all
