2nd Annual GridWise Global Forum 2011

November 16, 2011

 NEDO participated in the 2nd Annual Gridwise Global Forum 2011 held in Washington D.C. from November 8 to 10. This Forum offers an opportunity for policy and industry leaders, legislators, regulators and consumer and environmental advocates from around the globe to discuss smart grid trend and policies inside and outside the U.S. The Japan Smart Community Alliance (JSCA), for which NEDO serves as the secretariat, has been in collaborative relationship with the GridWise Alliance since April 2010.
 NEDO Executive Director Watanabe joined the panel discussion titled "Investing in our Electrical Future: The Impact Globally and Locally" to introduce Japan's increasing public awareness about the power supply status and energy conservation in response to the Great East Japan Earthquake, in addition to the outlook of smart grid development in Japan.
