This report presents a new paradigm where grids of different sizes have different power quality and reliability (PQR) structures so that local needs are met and the cost of energy reliability is commesurate with those local needs, rather than across the entire grid. By localizing energy use PQR requirements, grids can be developed on a smaller scale and distributed generation can be made more effective.
