Smart Energy Expert Pens Roadmap to "The Advanced Smart Grid"

Proximetry Chief Strategist Andres Carvallo Co-Authors "The Advanced Smart Grid" -- Explains Network Beginnings (Smart Grid 1.0), Evolution (Smart Grid 2.0) and Future of a New Energy World (Smart Grid 3.0)

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2011) - Andres Carvallo, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer for Proximetry, draws from his 25 years of experience in the energy, telecommunications, computer and software industries to share his views, lessons learned, and best practices on smart grid design, deployment and management in "The Advanced Smart Grid: Edge Power Driving Sustainability," published in June 2011 by Artech House. In "The Advanced Smart Grid," Carvallo and co-author John Cooper, president of Ecomergence, comprehensively illustrate the smart grid's origins, what it is today and how best to actualize its potential. At Proximetry, Carvallo is at the forefront of the smart grid evolution, delivering solutions to the new wireless communication challenges facing oil, gas and electricity network operators as they deploy advanced smart energy systems.

"The Advanced Smart Grid illustrates in detail the importance of network security, interoperability and architecture design to successfully realize the investments to be made in modernizing the electric grid," said Tracy Trent, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Proximetry.

The book has already been identified by industry leaders from the Pecan Street Project, IDC, Utilities Telecom Council, Cisco Systems, Global Smart Grid Federation, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, as well as academic leaders from the University of Kansas, the University of Texas at Austin, and the University of California Los Angeles, as the preeminent resource for understanding, architecting and deploying a functional smart grid.

"The Advanced Smart Grid is the visionary book on smart grids," said William R. Moroney, just recently retired president and chief executive officer at the Utilities Telecom Council. "It is the right book for these times. If you read only one book on the smart grid, you have already picked the right one."

"Carvallo and Cooper deliver in The Advanced Smart Grid a practical approach and candid opinions that bring clarity to the advancement of Smart Grid," said Guido Bartels, Chairman, Global Smart Grid Federation; Board Member and Former Chairman, Gridwise Alliance; and Member of the Electricity Advisory Committee, US Department of Energy.
