2 Demand Response Grows

3 System: A Traditional View Demand Conventional & Hydro Generation DistributionBulk Power System reliability

4 System: A Traditional View Demand Conventional & Hydro Generation DistributionBulk Power System Local Drivers Policy Security Economic Regional Drivers Policy Security Economic reliability Over the past 60 years, weve divided the grid into two separate systems.

5 The System Begins to Change Demand Conventional & Hydro Generation DistributionBulk Power System Demand Response Nuclear Energy Efficiency reliability As new resources were added, bulk system reliability became more dependent on distribution-level assets.

6 The 21 st Century Grid Emerges Demand Conventional & Hydro Generation DistributionBulk Power System Demand Response Nuclear Energy Efficiency Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles Rooftop Solar / Local Wind Development Wind & Variable Generation reliability The 21 st century grid will become a single, interdependent system.

7 The Smart Grid Demand Conventional & Hydro Generation Demand Response Nuclear Energy Efficiency Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles Rooftop Solar / Local Wind Development Wind & Variable Generation reliability smart grid The Smart Grid will enable the visualization and control needed to maintain operational reliability.

8 Common Challenges Demand Conventional & Hydro Generation Demand Response Nuclear Energy Efficiency Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles Rooftop Solar / Local Wind Development Wind & Variable Generation smart grid cyber security reliability

9 Common Drivers Demand Conventional & Hydro Generation Demand Response Nuclear Energy Efficiency Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles Rooftop Solar / Local Wind Development Wind & Variable Generation smart grid Drivers Policy Security Economic cyber security reliability Building the 21 st century grid requires a comprehensive and coordinated approach to policy and resource development.

10 The 21 st Century Grid Demand Conventional & Hydro Generation Demand Response Nuclear Energy Efficiency Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles Rooftop Solar / Local Wind Development Wind & Variable Generation smart grid reliability
