    Whether driven by higher energy costs, concern for climate change, or the oil spill in the gulf, the national conversation is no longer a debate regarding whether the smart grid and renewable energy sources should be developed. Rather, the debate has shifted to how and, more importantly, how rapidly they can be implemented. With stimulus dollars available to fund projects and with aggressive renewable energy policy portfolio mandates in place, smart grid projects are being put in place all across the nation. The development of the IIT Smart Grid Education and Workforce Training Center is well timed to fulfill its mandate of engaging utilities, corporations, labor unions, veterans, K-12 students and educators, and universities and community colleges in a collaborative initiative to train the strongest workforce in the world to meet the global challenges in the smart grid, energy independence, clean environment, and sustainable energy.

    Korea has launched a national smart grid project to achieve green growth in a proactive, transparent, comprehensive, and effective way. The project envisions laying the foundation for a low-carbon, green-growth economy by building a smart grid. It will thus serve as a yardstick with which to evaluate the future of Korea's green-growth economy. Korea's ambitious plan to build a smart grid is evidence of its determination to realize its low carbon and green-growth strategy. In this article, a national vision and road map toward the smart grid in Korea will be presented, followed by a discussion of future policy directions for the successful implementation of the smart grid.

    Large commercial and residential buildings represent a tremendous opportunity to achieve a level of system efficiency that far exceeds that of today's grid. Technology exists to make this vision a reality; however, the policy and business processes in place today have not been able to keep up with the available opportunities. Technology is evolving, and the smart grid needs to take advantage of advancements ranging from information technology to newly available energy efficiency improvements. The only way to truly maximize the benefits of the smart grid is to coordinate efforts among buildings, technology firms, energy curtailment providers, and other vendors. None of this will be possible without increased access to data for customers. We believe that the information is key, and that access to data in real time is the first step in establishing this critical linkage. View full abstract»

    The Smart Grid System will Deliver Electricity from producers to consumers using digital communications technology in order to conserve energy and increase reliability. Since the power grid system is one of the critical infrastructures in each country, however, the damage from various types of cyberattacks would result in tremendous disasters. Several cases of cyberattacks against power grids have been reported in various media and research conferences, and it is probable that the main target in the next cyberwar would be the smart grid system. In this article, we will look at the various cyberthreats and at efforts to enhance the cybersecurity of the smart grid system. View full abstract»
