“Smart Grid (R)Evolution: Electric Power Struggles” by Jennie C. Stephens, Elizabeth J. Wilson, and Tarla Rai Peterson now available published by Cambridge University Press February 2015.

This books explores electricity system change and how to promote renewable energy, integrate citizen desires and reliability in a time of rapid technological, social and environmental change. While smart grid has become a catch-all phrase to describe the future electric system, it masks critical social and cultural debates surrounding electricity system change. Questions of privacy, power, and control make the exploration of smart grid appealing to some and frightening to others.
