At the Information Systems and Science for Energy (ISS4E) Laboratory, we're applying the concepts and techniques pioneered by the Internet to energy problems, from monitoring individual buildings to developing an efficient, decentralized "smart" grid that draws energy from millions of small-scale sources and uses communications technology to match supply and demand.
The electricity grid of the future - the so-called "smart grid" - will feature more decentralized electricity generation, more storage and better matching of supply and demand. According to two University of Waterloo researchers, several concepts and technologies pioneered on the Internet can help achieve that vision.
