Funding Advice from Global Smart Energy


Redmond, WA-based Global Smart Energy has released guidelines for evaluating proposals for smart-grid projects that seek federal stimulus funds. The “stimulus scorecard” recommends proposals should be specific about how they impact things like consumer choice and energy bills, utilities’ desire for open, secure, and replicable systems, and job growth and other economic factors. The report is being distributed to state and local governments, policymakers, regulators, and utility executives around the country.
