Speaker: Peter Kelly-Detwiler

Start: Wednesday, September 08, 2010, 04:00PM

Location: UMBC Technology Center, 2nd floor Courtyard Conference Room

Abstract: Many people have heard of the term "smart grid" and there are many varying interpretations of what it means. But everybody can agree on three things:

  • It involves increased and timely access to information
  • There‚Äôs money in it
  • It will create new and unforeseen technologies and entrepreneurial opportunities
The discussion will center around why smart grid is needed, how an energy provider views the challenges and opportunities, the forces we see gathering on the horizon, and how Constellation Energy is responding. Issues related to power grid economics, volatility, risk management, and customer elasticities and perspectives will be addressed.

The seminar is free and open, but please RSVP to Bjorn Frogner (, the CETI Entrepreneur in Residence, if you plan to attend.
