How ‘Smart’ Is the Smart Grid?

Author

Daniel Arneman, PhD, Energy Analyst, PlotWatt afterword

The smart grid promises to make electric utilities more robust, responsive and intelligent, but what's in it for consumers? At PlotWatt, we're working to turn your monthly electricity bill into an itemized receipt, showing appliance-level usage as it happens. In this session, we'll use interactive JMP visualizations to explore the real-time electricity data produced by today's smart meters, and show how these insights can be used to lower monthly energy bills, detect breaking appliances, and uncover behavior patterns in homes and fast food restaurants.
