Smart energy solutions incorporate diverse energy sources, advanced monitoring, demand-side management, etc. Optimism in their practical adoption has arisen out of the development of effective approaches for a) Demand-supply management incorporating intermittent, renewable, energy sources; b) Monitoring and sensing to understand energy generation and consumption patterns; and c) Distributed information management and control strategies. The talk will cover these topics and show how some interesting problems remain.
