Duke Energy Releases Smart Grid White Paper

Duke Energy has released a new white paper, Developing the Communications Platform to Enable a More Intelligent Grid, which outlines an innovative approach for modernizing our electricity grid.

David Masters, Duke Energy manager of technology development and white paper author, outlines his vision to provide affordable, reliable and clean energy for homes and businesses by using a digital communications network to modernize our century-old delivery system.

“A digital power grid enabled by an open communications network will allow us to meet our nation’s continually growing energy needs in a sustainable way,” said Masters. “What’s more, this system would allow us to integrate technologies that have already proven effective in other industries in a way that is both flexible and scalable. Utilizing this technology in our grid could significantly improve energy efficiency, reliability and affordability.”
