3 3 © Copyright 2009, Southern California Edison What is a Smart Grid?

4 4 © Copyright 2009, Southern California Edison So What Makes a Grid Smart? Combination of energy, engineering and information technology A Smart Grid involves adding millions of smart electronic devices to the grid –i.e., wireless technologies, meters, and chargers in electric cars Adding the ability to: –Send and receive high resolution data –Produce actionable information –Use that information for more sophisticated intelligence and control The Smart Grid will allow: –More efficient and effective transmission of power –Integration of more intermittent renewable generation –More efficient and effective maintenance practices –Faster restoration when outages are unavoidable –Increased customer choice

10 10 © Copyright 2009, Southern California Edison Provide real-time voltage support to mitigate volatility associated with intermittent renewable energy resources Increase transmission capacity to integrate more bulk renewable energy resources Integrate large scale energy storage systems as a parallel power source for intermittent renewable energy supply Renewables Integration SCE leads the nation in renewable power, procuring 13 billion kWh’s per year

11 11 © Copyright 2009, Southern California Edison CA Renewables Portfolio Standard 20% by 2010 Possibly 33% by 2020 (statute under consideration) California Solar Initiative (CSI) Goal to install 3,000 megawatts (MW) of new, customer-owned solar photovoltaic projects by –The CPUC provides incentives for all solar installations in existing structures. CA Carbon Reduction Law (AB 32) Reduce greenhouse gasses (GHG) by 25% by 2025 California law and policy is driving the need for a smarter grid Renewable & DER Growth

12 12 © Copyright 2009, Southern California Edison The need: The growing complexity of interconnected electric grids increases the threat of blackouts and other challenges, facilitating the need for a smarter electric grid with wide-area measurement Hardware: Phasor measurement units (PMUs) help identify remote system disturbances, in advance, to prevent wide- scale power outages Software: Power System Outlook (PSO) is a real-time tool that enables operators and engineers to quickly and affordably analyze synchrophasor measurement system data from a large power grid Phasor technology enables real-time system monitoring and reduces outages Synchrophasor Measurement System

13 13 © Copyright 2009, Southern California Edison Enable distributed energy resources and storage to support customer choice and improve grid stability Prevent catastrophic system failures through innovative real time power system analytics and grid technologies Minimize customer power disruptions due to distribution system failures through expansive automation Avanti - Circuit of the Future Expand smart technology deployment from investments over the past decade Transmission & Distribution Automation

14 14 © Copyright 2009, Southern California Edison Choice to Manage Cost & Peak Demand –Dynamic Pricing Options –Optional Demand Response Programs Smart Communicating Thermostats –Outcome Reduce Peak Load by 1,000 MWs Energy Information Drives Conservation –Reduce Residential Energy Consumption –Reduce GHG Automated Self-Service –Remote Service Switch –Payment and Billing Options © Copyright 2008, Southern California Edison Smart Metering: Edison SmartConnect™ Enable customers to increase energy conservation and reduce peak loads

15 15 © Copyright 2009, Southern California Edison Zero Net Energy Home Engaging Customers in the Supply Chain

16 16 © Copyright 2009, Southern California Edison Tehachapi Wind Energy Storage Project (TSP) Deploy and evaluate an 8 MW utility-scale lithium-ion battery technology to improve grid performance and aid in the integration of wind generation into the electric supply. The project will evaluate a wider range of applications for lithium-ion batteries that will spur broader demand for the technology, bringing production to a scale that will make this form of large energy storage more affordable

17 17 © Copyright 2009, Southern California Edison Irvine Smart Grid Demonstration (ISGD) Will demonstrate an integrated, scalable Smart Grid system that includes all of the interlocking pieces of an end-to-end Smart Grid system - from the transmission and distribution systems to consumer applications like smart appliances and electric vehicles. The project will focus on the interoperability and interactions between technologies and systems working at the same time - such as communications networks, cyber-security requirements, and interoperability standards. Sub-project: –Workforce of the Future: Identify the Organizational Impacts and Educational Curriculum Development to Produce the Next Generation Utility Worker

18 18 © Copyright 2009, Southern California Edison How will the Smart Grid Impact the Workforce?

19 19 © Copyright 2009, Southern California Edison Workforce Safety & Productivity Enhance the safety and effectiveness of the future smart grid workforce SCE is implementing technological innovations to enable the efficient management and transfer of data by personnel to achieve the objectives of a smarter grid and create an even more productive and safer field workforce: –Safer and more reliable system operations –More cost-effective system maintenance –Elimination of field manual data input –Transparent data collection and maintenance
