Innovation spotlight: the smart energy grid

How Duke Energy is modernizing the grid to give you more control

The energy grid is the backbone of the new digital economy. That’s why Duke Energy is investing $25 billion to modernize it.

A smart grid offers many advancements: Smart meters give you control over how and when you use energy, and how much you spend; self-healing networks make power outages shorter and increasingly rare; and we can generate more energy from renewable sources, delivering cleaner energy to your neighborhood.

This is first in a series of videos explaining how the modernized smart grid will deliver benefits including more convenience and control over energy use, better integration of renewables, decreased outages and faster restoration.
