Greentech Media organized the SoftGrid 2014 conference in Menlo Park on September 10th and 11th. This conference brought together a diverse collection of companies, organizations, and interested individuals who are working to make the Smart Grid into something that not only benefits the entire energy chain from the utilities to the consumer but also addresses the numerous problems associated with making such a complex system work.  The core topic was how to manage, analyze, and take-action on the massive amounts of data generated within the Smart Grid. Not only does this availability of data present many opportunities but it also presents issues that need to be addressed. I have captured some of the ideas presented at this conference and will summarize some important “take-aways”.
