Full Spectrum will be presenting on May 18 in Palm Springs at Greentech Media’s upcoming 2010 Networked Grid smart grid conference. Full Spectrum’s CEO, Stewart Kantor, will be participating on the panel entitled “Power Forward: Grid Optimization and Distribution Automation”. Additional panel members include executives from Cisco, Siemens, S&C Electric and GridNet. A description of the panel follows:

Power Forward: Grid Optimization and Distribution Automation
Overall grid optimization and, specifically, Distribution Automation is the highest priority application among North American utility smart grid decision makers, with 77% ranking it number one, according to a recent survey from GTM Research. Optimizing the power layer infrastructure for real‐time distribution automation applications may not be as sexy an application as networked electric vehicles or snazzy home energy management systems, but it's a major issue for utilities and can provide a significant amount of efficiency from an internal operations perspective on the utility end of the spectrum. Embedding sensors that interact with the communications layer of smart grids is an important topic and providing an infrastructure that can support very low latency is critical for its success. This session explores grid optimization and distribution automation technologies and architectures in depth
