You’ve heard of smartphones, but what about the Smart Grid? New systems will power all our devices, from cell phones to cars. This Smart Grid allows us to use greener energy like solar and wind power. It also protects our grid from threats like cyber attacks, wildfire, lightning strikes, and squirrels. This will be an interactive session about the science and technology behind the electricity grid and cutting-edge smart grid research happening in New Mexico.
