Contents Notes ...Key enabling changes must be made in the electricity grid that connects our power plants to each consumer's home. The electric transmission grid comprises both high-capacity and lower-capacity transmission lines that when properly planned and integrated make it possible to move vast amounts of power from remote sources of generation to our population centers. The grid is the essential enabling device that makes a new clean-energy economy possible. The grid allows the electricity system to adapt to unpredictable events and constantly changing circumstances. Only the deployment of a smart grid empowered by advanced information technology can manage these increasingly complex, efficient, and resilient networks.
