Pecan Street Project: Smart grids and Austins energy future
Can technology allow us to work smarter instead of harder to meet people’s energy needs? The city of Austin proposes to lead the nation in developing and deploying smart grid technology that sends energy where it is needed most, allows household appliances to communicate and distribute demand, and provides other efficient solutions. Join us for a discussion on smart grids - what they are, why they're cool - and the future of Austin’s energy.
