Smart Grid Technology

We may soon have smart grid technology in the Philippines as the Dept. of Energy is moving towards this direction.

At the recent K-Ligtas Awards of Meralco held at the SMX Convention Center, Energy Undersecretary Felix William Fuentebella said that it is high time we give attention to safety. The country's move towards smart grid technology is a big step towards this as the government ensures the people's safety through the use of emerging technologies.This will entail multi-party cooperation as private utilities and electric cooperatives are updated in terms of knowledge, capabilities and skills. Fuentebella also said that there is a need to tap the academe by incorporating energy safety into the curriculum most especially in engineering courses. The Energy Undersecretary himself is preparing a module for this in order to address the gap and collate everything needed to make the module more comprehensive.
