The 2010 Smart Grid System Report (SGSR) to Congress explores the current status of smart grid development, its future prospects, and the technical and financial obstacles to progress. It also outlines the scope of a smart grid, assesses the stakeholder landscape and provides several recommendations for future reports. The report concludes that near-term progress in smart grid deployments has been significant due primarily to the investments made under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009.
