Producing the first statewide Smart Grid Implementation Plan in the US, the West Virginia Smart Grid team examined current WV electricity grid conditions and the likely future state required to support the development of a 21st century economy. Progressing through established DOE Smart Grid characteristics and key technology areas, the analysis identified several gaps to address to establish a resilient and reliable energy infrastructure supportive of West Virginia's future economic development. A detailed business case, complete with cost benefit analysis and scenarios, offers solutions in an implementation plan with timeframes to direct specific benefits to consumers, society, and utilities.
