More Than Smart

On September 10, 2013 the Governor’s Office will host a conference along with the Green Technology Leadership Group, ARM Holdings, and the Energy Foundation called “More Than Smart: Making the Grid More Transparent, Dynamic, and Resilient.” It will bring together leading industry, nonprofit and government thought leaders to discuss the transformative opportunities arising from the convergence of new communication technologies and California’s energy infrastructure. Through plenary sessions, panel discussions, and interactive breakout groups, participants will help outline potential technology and policy pathways. The conference will focus specifically on answering the following three questions:

  • What changes are needed now so that every participant has real-time information to manage their use of energy?
  • What is the mix of incentives that can be offered to encourage greater energy efficiency, increased distributed generation and greater responsiveness to system needs?
  • How can California ensure the reliability, resiliency and effective use of electricity supplies?

*Due to space limitations, attendance will be invitation only.
