What is the Smart Grid?
“The Smart Grid is the integration of an electric grid, a communications network, software and hardware to monitor, control, and manage the creation, distribution, and consumption of energy. The smart grid of the future will be distributed, it will be interactive, it will be self-healing, and it will communicate with every device.”
“An Advanced Smart Grid enables the seamless integration of utility infrastructure with buildings, homes, electric vehicles, distributed generation, energy storage, and smart devices to increase grid reliability, energy efficiency, renewable energy use, and customer satisfaction, while reducing capital and operating costs.”
Andres Carvallo – March 5, 2004
What is Digitization? Digitization is the process of creating a digital representation (into 1s and 0s) of an analog things and/or physical object that can be manipulated in a computing environment. The result is the representation of an object, image, sound, document, or signal by generating a series of numbers that describe a discrete set of points.
What is Digitalization? Digitalization is the use of digital technologies to change a business model and provide new revenue and value-producing opportunities; it is the process of moving to a digital business and economy.
What is Decentralization? Decentralization is the natural evolution of scientific and technological democratization that moves traditional large systems that historically serviced many affordably from a world of scarcity into mass customized sophisticated distributed solutions at super low prices that create a world of abundance for all.
What is Decarbonization? Decarbonization is the elimination of CO2 from our man-made energy ecosystem to ensure temperatures that have no negative impact on climate patterns.

Here is one of my gifts to the world
It will solve poverty and allow for nice retirements for each person. Collect the data of each person and allow each to get compensated at the rate of $25 for each 2 gigabytes of data. A normal person would generate around 10 terabytes of data annually or $125,000 as a base salary. If the individual creates and licenses more data than the annual number above, then they make more money. All we need is a personal data marketplace registry for people to tag their data before it goes into the social platforms, etc. #cmg #freedomtosucceed #equalrights
