Emerson hopes that Smart Grid will bridge the communication gap between supply and demand, spanning from power plants into residential homes. The grid will handle multiple sources and levels of electricity generation, incorporating clean, alternate energy, including solar. Through digital delivery and control interfaces, it will allow consumers to make informed decisions about their power use.

“Emerson Network Power has power expertise from grid to chip – from embedded power supplies and converters to power transfer switches to uninterruptible power supplies, and our peer businesses within Emerson broaden that range tremendously – from power generation to the thermostats at the point of consumption,” said Charles O’Donnell, vice president of engineering for the Liebert AC Power business of Emerson Network Power in North America.  “This eBook allows us to share some basic information to help organizations prepare for a Smart Grid, and ultimately take advantage of capabilities that could significantly benefit our planet and their bottom line.”

The eBook is available here.
