Website of the Week: CITRIS Smart Energy Research

Centre for Information Technology Research in the Interests of Society

The first public-private partnership created to use IT in this way, CITRIS
partners more than 300 faculty and thousands of students from myriad departments at four UC campuses (Berkeley, Davis, Merced and Santa Cruz) with industrial researchers from over 60 corporations. Together they are thinking about IT in ways that have not been thought of before. They see solutions to many of the concerns that face all of us today, from the environment and finding viable
sustainable energy alternatives to healthcare delivery and developing secure
electronic medical records and remote diagnosis, ultimately boosting economic
productivity. CITRIS represents a bold and exciting vision that is leveraging
one of the top university systems in the world with highly successful corporate
partners and government resources.

Smart meetering, flexible pricing and demand side management are all covored. Video presentations explain the topics with background notes.
