Welcome to A Smart Energy Future, the nation’s first comprehensive curriculum-based program for students to learn about how technology is changing the future of energy!

Just as the Internet revolutionized the last 20 years, launching high tech companies such as Google, Amazon, eBay, Facebook and Twitter, we are set to see a similar revolution in the energy industry in the next 20 years. Silver Spring Networks is ensuring the next generation is preparing for exciting careers that merge technology with energy.

We would like to introduce you to one of the most promising technologies that is making a significant impact around the world: it is called the smart grid. Where the Internet is the networking of “people,” think of the smart grid as the networking of “things” that generate, distribute and transmit energy.

As the smart grid is deployed, it will lead to many benefits. It will save people money, help conserve energy and improve the environment. The smart grid will reduce the need for fossil fuel and enable greater use of renewable energy sources.

Additionally, the smart grid will generate new and rewarding careers in the expanding green industries and energy sectors. With that in mind, it is essential that students be aware of the role technology will play in our energy future and know how they can prepare to make the best choices for their personal and professional futures.

We are excited about the smart energy program and look forward to working with your school. Take some time to look at the site and get a better understanding of the program, its benefits and its successes.
