The Department of Energy (DOE) has revved up efforts to synchronize the adoption of smart grid technologies in the country.

A “smart” electricity grid uses technology—such as meters and appliances—that allows for two-way communication between the distribution utility and consumers, as well as sensors along power lines.

Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi said in a statement smart technologies could give energy users more power to control energy “through their fingertips.”

“For us to guide the consumers, the service providers and the regulators, we should not lose sight of the basic concept that smart grid is simply a tool for the consumers and energy users to be more active and more efficient in the utilization of energy,” the energy chief said.

Cusi also said that despite its complexity and technical diversity, the smart grid policy should place the consumers first in driving its design and implementation.
