Keith talks with Emir Jose Macari, Dean of the College of Engineering & Computer Science at California State University - Sacramento. He is also the Director of the California Smart Grid Center. Macari talks about his early fascination with taking things apart which eventually led to his career as an engineer. He introduces us to smart grid, which will eventually help develop devices to monitor electronic usage on a more personal scale. Currently, most electricity in the nation is centrally located and has to travel for miles to reach customers. Smart grid hopes to improve the production, delivery, and usage of energy.
