This presentation will discuss the initiatives Austin Energy took for putting together the Smart Grid. From expanding their metering equipment to playing with sensor equipment on the distribution and automation side to replacing older computer systems are some steps that Austin Energy has taken towards integration of the smart grid. In order to accomplish building a Smart Grid, Austin Energy had to reevaluate its entire IT department. This meant that Andres Carvallo had to implement a systemic plan to turn the IT department around and the then shift his focus to having the IT department run in conjunction with the Smart Grid. Presentation Highlights Include: • Lay the groundwork necessary to implement the Smart Grid • Assess the requirements of your market and where your organization is heading in terms of capabilities • Redefine how your organization does business: streamline cash so you can invest in smart grid technologies • Implement a service-oriented structure to make your Smart Grid Work
