This executive panel will set the stage for the conference by framing what the next decade of smart grid development will look like.  Over the last five years, significant progress has been made in designing and deploying smart grid technologies to jumpstart grid modernization. Today the grid faces a different set of opportunities and challenges than it was when the Recovery Act began in 2009.  This session will focus on these new “frontiers.” What are the emerging challenges that now limit efforts to create a modern grid and a sustainable energy economy? As technology has advanced, what new opportunities are we pursuing?
