Smart Energy - Need for Sensors and Beyond

Managing energy use, whether it is in a car, a building or on the grid, requires information.
Without information, systems are often open loop, sub-optimal, and sometimes unstable. This
talk will focus on the need for sensors, but it will place it in a larger context - how does one reduce
energy consumption and carbon emissions cost-effectively.
