The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers or IEEE has just launched a website dedicated to information about Smart Grid technology, or "the next-generation, managed electrical power system that leverages increased use of communications and information technology in the generation, delivery and consumption of electrical energy."
IEEE hopes the website will be "an integrated gateway to Smart Grid intelligence, education and news from IEEE and other expert sources... designed for manufacturers, policymakers, educators, academics, governments, engineers, computer scientists, researchers and other stakeholders in the power and energy, information technology (IT), and communications industries."
