A smart grid is one that automatically balances demand and supply through intelligent load scheduling and dynamic pricing. Which means, a smart grid will have more than sufficient control built in to avoid blackouts and grid failures. Considering that even a 10% gap in supply and demand unchecked can lead to grid failures, smart grids are an excellent way for India to manage its power generation and utilization. Just as cellular phones allowed India to take a quantum leap in telephone coverage, I am confident that Smart Grids will certainly enable India to take a quantum leap in energy generation and usage. I disagree with the overall tone of this article.

Yes Smart Grid will solve the problem the country is facing where the power demand exceeds the generated capacity. There will be no black-outs and power failures if the Smart Grid is implemented. The government should seriously think of adopting this technology? A. S. Bhasker Raj Bangalore
