A Greener, Smarter Electricity Grid - Thanks to the Internet

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.
