This 2010 presentation by the Head of Energy Efficiency and Environmental Section of the International Energy Agency describes the linkages between the smart grid and energy efficiency, and outlines the key systems and technologies to maximize efficiency benefits.
This paper examines the results of demand response (DR) implementation throughout the European Union, focusing on the factors that have either aided development of DR or acted as barriers.
This two-year publication series features instances of best practice in clean energy policy in Germany and the United States.
This report examines cost reduction and technology improvement trends for a suite of renewable energy generation options, and it illuminates other factors that may influence their deployment through 2025.
This report analyses the nature of variable renewable energy and the resulting challenges associated with integrating variable renewable energy technologies into a power system. It highlights the importance of increased flexibility when integrating high levels of variable renewable energy.
As distributed energy resource technologies proliferate on the grid, resulting changes to the grid will make it more efficient and reliable, and will provide end users with the opportunity to more proactively use energy and reduce the cost of services.
This working paper analyses the evolution of peak load demand to 2050 in four key regions: Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Europe, OECD North America, OECD Pacific and China.
This report examines how Smart Grid deployment will effect utilities, equipment and service providers, and policymakers, and goes on to suggest how each group should respond to the immense challenges and yet great opportunities that Smart Grid brings to the electric grid system.
This video portrays scenarios 2025, when smart grid development has taken varying paths in different parts of the world. It was produced in conjunction with a participatory multimedia game titled "Smart Grid 2025”.
