WiP Webinar – Community of the Future
June 17, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
ComEd and a local community- Bronzeville, are collaborating to bring a host of technologies and services – current and future – to create a “smart community” in which the energy system – and the many uses of its digital network – is localized and human-centered, with power that is ultra-reliable and can be generated and controlled at the community level. Residents and businesses will benefit from new technologies such as a microgrid, community solar gardens, and a network of EV charging stations amongst others.
A Community of the Future is a place where ComEd and a local community collaborate to create a “smart community” – connected, custom, livable, and, sustainable – in which the smart grid and a host of other technologies and related services are fully leveraged to enhance the everyday lives of community members.
Anyone interested in learning about ways the utility company at Chicago is leveraging the grid, and the other innovative technologies that ComEd is working on.
