About Smart Grid

In 2009 President Barack Obama asked the United States Congress "to act without delay" to pass legislation that included doubling alternative energy production in the next three years and building a new electricity "smart grid". [4] On April 13, 2009, George W. Arnold was named the first National Coordinator for Smart
Grid Interoperability.[5] In June 2009, the NIST announced a smart grid interoperability project via IEEE P2030.[6]

Home automation technologies like Zigbee, INSTEON and Zwave are viewed as integral additions to the Smart Grid. The ability to control lighting, appliances, and HVAC as well as Smart Grid applications (load shedding, demand response, real-time power usage and price reporting) [7] will become vital as Smart Grid initiatives are rolled out.
