Google, Bridge Strategy Group, Sharp Labaroties and 3Tier have teamed up with GridWise Alliance to transform the US electric power system.
Katherine Hamilton, president of the GridWise Alliance, said, ‘We are pleased to welcome these new members to the GridWise Alliance. The addition of these leading companies strengthens the Alliance and broadens its impact. Their knowledge and innovation will be invaluable to our efforts to transform the electricity grid.’
‘Google is pleased to join the GridWise Alliance,’ said Dan Reicher, Google’s director for Climate Change & Energy Initiatives. ‘Smart grid technologies will empower consumers with real time, money-saving information about their energy use. Building a smart grid — essentially an energy Internet — will also enable plug-in electric vehicles, speed the development of utility-scale renewable energy, and spur the creation of clean energy jobs.’
The GridWise Alliance was founded in 2003. The Alliance advocates a vision of an electric system that integrates the infrastructure, processes, devices, information and market structure so that energy can be generated, distributed, and consumed more efficiently.
