The electric power industry is going through a digital transformation just like every other industry. In particular, the digital transformation is enabling new approaches to customer participation, efficiency of operation (enabling the workforce), reliability and resiliency, and asset management. This discussion will focus in particular on the tremendous opportunities to enable customer and community participation in the operation of the grid and the resulting benefits for both the customer and the grid. The discussion will also look at some of the challenges in making this vision a reality communication infrastructure required, consumer education, coordination with regulators, data privacy, etc. Finally, we will look at the research priorities to solve some of these challenges.
