Why do we have a power ‘Grid’ at all?Simple…to be more productive. Energy fuels our industry, our industries fuel our economies. After we saw the first massive spikes in industrial productivity from this new thing called electricity, we were hooked and the ‘Grid’ began. Our post-wattage days have been blissful until now. Now we are seeing limits where none were before. So, what to do.We apply the same ingenuity and management to Watts as we do to Packets. That is Cisco’s technical approach to what is otherwise a social construct; Green. Reduce Watts, and in turn reduce carbon through Smart Loads. With that, the utilities that provide us with our Watts will be able to use the same technologies used to control the “business” side of energy. There will be a lag but when people talk Smart Grid today it can mean many things. Basic Ethernet connectivity may be one.If you want to geek out on how things are coming along here at Cisco on energy tech, have a listen to a recent interview I was privileged to provide. Its a discussion with John Gilroy of Federal News Radio 1500AM in Washington, DC.John runs a great show and we really engaged on some meaty bits, you can play as a URL or download as a podcast…
