Smart Grid

Congress directed the FCC, in its development of a National Broadband Plan, to include “a plan for the use of broadband infrastructure and services in advancing... energy independence and efficiency.” Smart Grid technology is a promising way to use broadband and other advanced communications to promote energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and encourage energy independence. Smart Grid applications are being deployed using a variety of public and private communications networks.
