Focus on energy: Nationís electric grid needs overhaul

Abstract:
Roger Anderson, an advocate of a Web-enabled smart grid, said the energy industry as a whole shies away from new technologies until it has little choice but to adapt. He also envisions a role, albeit a distant one, for nanotechnologies such as quantum wires. Quantum wires, or carbon nanotubes stacked into a long, cylindrical pattern, theoretically will carry electricity far more efficiently than todayís transmission wires.
