US Department of Energy – The Smart Grid: An Introduction

US Department of Energy

Office of Electricity Delivery & Energy Reliability

PROJECT:

The Smart Grid: An Introduction, a 48-page book on the state of our nation’s electrical grid and the need for its modernization.

CHALLENGE:

To convey, in layman’s terms, to a wide range of stakeholders the absolute necessity of modernizing our nation’s electric grid while it is running full-tilt  – by means of technologies, tools and techniques similar to those that gave rise to the internet.

SOLUTION:

In tackling a topic rife with complexities, “The Smart Grid: An Introduction” keeps it simple, making it more accessible and meaningful to a broad audience which can perhaps speed Smart Grid adoption.

RESULTS:

The good word is getting around. “The Smart Grid: An Introduction” was distributed to all attendees at GridWeek 2008 in Washington, DC. It has been posted on DOE’s website and smartgrid.gov. And thousands of additional copies have been requested by interested companies and individuals.

As the Director of Smart Grid Task Force, we have plenty of work ahead of us. Litos Strategic Communication has helped us reach a key milestone in developing The Smart Grid: An Introduction.”
