GE Applauds Department of Energy’s Planned Smart Grid Stimulus Announcement

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As a major architect of smart grid solutions around the world, GE applauds the Department of Energy's (DOE) smart grid announcement planned for later today.

“The DOE demonstrates an understanding of the smart grid as an economic and global competitiveness tool for all Americans”

"The DOE demonstrates an understanding of the smart grid as an economic and global competitiveness tool for all Americans," said Luke Clemente, general manager of GE Energy Services’ smart grid business, responding to the DOE’s October 26 pre-briefing. "The holistic smart grid solutions receiving funding deliver synergistic reliability, efficiency and clean-energy technologies across the electrical network. As a result, consumers will have the power to manage and control their energy use, and we can add more clean energy sources to the generation mix—all while creating thousands of high value, non-transferable, green-collar jobs. This approach tracks closely with GE's smart grid vision that has been honed by decades of research and a century of real-world experience focused on continually improving how power is generated, delivered and consumed."
