Carvallo and Cooper deliver a must-read for anyone interested in the promise and capability of these fast-evolving networks."

Format: Hardcover
Before they invite you to travel with them into the future, Carvallo and Cooper do a solid job of orienting the reader with concise summaries of where the grid came from, how it's evolved over time, and as accurately as possible, how it's doing in its current state. For the many immigrants who've recently moved to energy from other sectors (like me), this is a great grounding.

But it's where the book goes after that that makes it almost worth its high sticker price. The authors look past the current climate of activity, much of it initially fueled with government grants, to a phase where business drivers alone dictate what gets deployed next. And they walk us down a path from yesterday's Smart Grid 1.0 (birthed at Austin Electric in Texas), to today's 2.0 versions growing in Austin and around the world, enabled by advances in distributed energy resources (DER), energy storage solutions, new business models and more. Ultimately, they begin to unveil for us a blurry but emerging vision of Smart Grid 3.0, or "the advanced Smart Grid", that's predicated on pervasive IP networking, tons and tons of data, microgrids, EVs and virtual power plants.

Old timers, unaccustomed to much change over their careers may scoff. And maybe they're right to. But for folks raised in the Internet age and looking to transform an industry from something good to something great, this is must reading.

Would be a five star rating but for the price. Hopefully it'll come down a ways as an ebook soon ... before too much of the future gets here.

I just read the book cover to cover. I'm a professional in the Green Tech, Energy Efficiency, Smart Grid space, and Andres and John have taken the many new emerging technologies and concepts, have gotten rid of the conjecture, and have created a usable road map for those seeking to understand what all the excitment is around grid modernization.

Energy efficiency is a robust problem from all aspects that simply must be solved. Andres and John enlighten and give direction to solutions.

I would recomend this book to analysts, utility industry workers, special interest groups, and academia.

I have read the book about 50 times since it came out last summer. It is amazing how clear the language is, how on the money the descriptions are, and how the vision and predictions of future events have come to reality as written in the book. It is by far the best smart grid book ever.
