Most everyone is familiar with the cliché: Build it and they will come. But for those who might have somehow missed that one, the phrase was made famous by the movie “Field of Dreams” about two decades ago in 1989. The overarching message in those few simple words was that if you want some­thing badly enough, sometimes you have to be willing to move forward on nothing more than your own faith in its merits. This is a concept that a friend of mine used to call willing suspension of disbelief. It’s a popu­lar concept these days, especially as regards the Smart Grid.

Like many others, one large U.S. utility has its plan in progress to deploy two million smart meters over the next two years. Its goals are two-fold: more accurately meter retail electricity consumption and enable retail consumers to react to changing real-time electricity prices.

On January 21, 2010 the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a Notice of Inquiry (NOI) to examine the integration of variable energy resources (VERs) into the wholesale power grid of Independent System Operators (ISOs) and Regional Transmis-sion Organizations (RTOs).

In the past decade, the topics of energy production and storage have become a high priority for business and government, both of which have increased concerns relating to the environment and the sustainability of energy sources for the future. The latest policies are designed to reduce the use of fossil fuels in favor of clean, green electrical energy, and current government policy is designed to promote this approach by encouraging energy conservation and the utilization of more renewable energy sources for the production of electrical energy.
