s766 - Utilities & Innovative Partnership Driving SMART City Expansion

Communities across the country are turning to utilities to assist them in developing smart-city plans that efficiently deliver existing services, expand the breadth of offerings available for residents, and reduce energy consumption. In New York, for example, the City of Schenectady (the “City” or “Schenectady”), led by Mayor Gary McCarthy, announced “the appointment of a Mayoral Smart City commission to take advantage of new technology for the superior delivery of government services and improved quality of life.” National Grid has partnered with the City to look at what opportunities exist across the market to further those smart-city efforts by proposing this Reforming the Energy Vision (“REV”) demonstration project. Together, the City and the Company along with innovative partners will deploy and evaluate an advanced street lighting platform, which will animate the market for smart-city technologies and services.
