About this talk

This keynote address will examine the major policy and regulatory issues that are expected to define the nature, pace and scope of smart grid deployment in the United States over the next several years and beyond. Issues regarding federal and state jurisdiction will be explored with particular focus on how decisions could impact architecture, market players, access to and use of utility and customer information, interoperability and Cybersecurity standards and cost recovery mechanisms. In addition, several recent decisions by regulators provide important insight into what factors are most likely to determine how technology will be deployed.
