Overview

Electrical generation is the single largest contributor to CO2 emissions today. The smart grid has the potential to address the systemic inefficiency of electrical systems and work with complementary technologies to improve the environmental friendliness of electric generation, transmission, distribution and usage. We work with industry leaders, trade associations, government agencies and environmental groups to conduct tests, anticipate usage modalities and evolve standards to ensure that sufficient safeguards are in place to support innovations to the smart grid and related

technologies and products.
