The grid is becoming smarter as the nature of energy generation is changing. Small scale solar installations, as well as utility-scale wind and solar farms, have begun to complement large coal, gas, and oil-fired power plants. But the energy revolution of the 21st Century isn't just about new fuels and localized energy generation; it's also about the changing role of utility companies, their employees, and the consumers interactions with utilities. In other words, the grid is being turned inside out not only by new sources of energy, but also by new ways of deploying and using energy.
