+ - Australian engineers study off-the-grid power tech->

Submitted by natecochrane
natecochrane (1887566) writes "CSIRO researchers have turned to biology and computer science to model the next-gen electricity network. Imagine a world where the power grid you relied on was just you, a few neighbours, perhaps a data centre and an office block and self-generating devices such as solar panels or a wind turbine. Researcher Dr David Cornforth said such micro-grids will be the ribs of the smart grid that "will become the largest control and measurement system on the planet". Dr Cornforth's team was borrowing from genetic algorithms, AI and advanced simulation techniques to model how micro-grids and new types of batteries will power our appliances, homes and businesses in the near future, he said."
