ABSTRACT
The article discusses why the world needs a smarter grid. The author presents a brief overview of an event on November 8, 2009 in which half of Spain was powered by wind. He notes that Spanish authorities had to shut down the electricity grid to avoid overloading the system because the grid was not connected to the rest of Europe. Topics include the unpredictability of wind power, the need for renewable energy investments, and the overhaul of electrical grids.
