Electricity 2.0 talk at ETech

I gave a talk at the O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference (ETech) in San Jose earlier this year. The title of the talk was Electricity 2.0 – applying the lessons of the Internet to our Energy networks. I uploaded my slides to SlideShare shortly after the talk and yesterday I was contacted by the O’Reilly team to let me know the video of my presentation was online so here you go.

It is similar to other Electricity 2.0 talks I have given with a few updates and new slides. Enjoy!


Grid 2.0 primer

I’m giving a talk at the O’Reilly ETech conference in San Jose next month (March 11th 2009). The title of my talk is “Electricity 2.0: Applying The Lessons Of The Web To Our Energy Networks“.

The talk will be about how to make the electrical distribution system more green and more resilient using demand response and smart grids in a consumer empowering way. I will also discuss my vision for an electricity system where you will be able to see the generation mix of all utilities and dynamically chose the Greenest supplier and other out there concepts!

In the video above, you can watch a primer to this talk I gave in a webinar for O’Reilly last night.
