Smart Grid Heavy Hitter series – Ahmad Faruqui

Ahmad Faruqui is a principal with the Brattle Group and one of the US’ foremost experts on Smart Grids. I asked him to come on the Heavy Hitters show and we had a fascinating chat.

We talked about:

  • Ahmad’s definition of a Smart Grid
  • People seeing higher utility bills as a result of the rollout of Smart Meters
  • How much the Smart Grid will cost
  • Who is going to pay for the Smart Grid
  • How long before we see Smart Grids being rolled out
