Cleantech Revolution: Building Smart infrastructures
PricewaterhouseCoopers (1-19-2010)

As part of the push for the United States to gain energy independence, conserve energy, and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, efforts are under way to build foundational infrastructures that will support a smart electricity grid and an electric vehicle ecosystem. Building a smart infrastructure requires technologies aimed at transforming existing electricity grids to create greater efficiencies, reliability, and the integration of renewable energy sources.

Public and private funding going to smart infrastructures has markedly increased in the last year. Many executives across all industries are beginning to assess the opportunities and challenges smart infrastructure may present for their companies - either directly or indirectly. How will this infrastructure transformation impact your clients and what benefit will it hold for business? This PwC publication offers insight into the role both large and start-up companies can have in this transformation.
