Broadband and the Smart Grid

One of the interesting elements of this conference is hearing from other players in the Smart Grid development (most of my time is normally spent with other "buildings" folks). This morning's session opened with a panel discussion with panelists from the DOE, FCC, and GE -- definitely outside the "buildings" space.

Also interesting in this conference is learning about the FCC's
National Broadband Plan (PDF), in particular Chapter 12, "Energy and the Environment," mentioned yesterday and again today. The whole thing is a short 300-odd page read (less than half the size of the BACnet standard). Something for the flight home, perhaps.
