Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC (News - Alert)) and Intelligent Communications Partners (ICP) today announced the second annual Smart Grid Product of the Year Awards. SmartGrid.TMCnet.com has quickly become the premier resource for current information concerning the increasing migration to smart grid technology.
The Smart Grid Product of the Year Awards will honor those innovators delivering Smart Grid technology products brought to market in 2010. Your solutions could be included on this elite list of the industry’s finest and could help differentiate your product from the competition.
Building out the smart grid is the single most significant national infrastructure project since the build out of the Internet itself. In many ways, it's about bringing the same type of communications and control capabilities enabled by the Internet to all components of, what is recognized as, the largest, most distributed and complex machine: the National Grid.
The vast potential for smart grid-enabling devices, network infrastructure and game-changing applications is limited only by the imagination of innovators and pioneers in making the smart grid vision a reality.
“The smart grid space continues to evolve rapidly, and we believe this initiative will help utilities make better decisions about their deployments", said Jon Arnold, co-founder of ICP. "In addition, with so many new offerings coming from outside the traditional group of companies, we hope this will expose utilities to a wider variety of smart grid partners."
“Presenting our second annual Product of the Year Awards, we will again honor the companies that contribute to the advancement of smart grid technologies,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC. “If your company is a smart grid innovator, I encourage you to apply and join the elite list of winners.”
