Feb 2 Forum Spotlights Smart Grid in Massachusetts

Studies show the public is overwhelmingly unaware of the term “smart grid” – not to mention how it works. Yet, technology experts point to significant advantages of this intelligent approach to energy production and use.

It’s not easy. It holds big implications for the business of energy including: traditional utilities, clean tech and data networking companies, and even your local cable operator. Not to mention, you and your family, of course.

Join us Wed., Feb. 2, for spirited discussion, coffee and networking with Bob Halpin, founder of the Mass. Smart Grid Innovators Collaborative (MASGIC). Bob will give us the real scoop on the state of smart grids in Mass and what’s left to be done. It promises to be a great Forum.

Bob Halpin is a smart grid strategy expert connecting people, ideas and resources to explore intelligent new energy systems. In 2009, he founded MASGIC to promote energy innovation and consumer engagement in the electric system and energy markets. In 2010 created the New England Smart Grid Conference to engage technology, utility and regulatory leaders across New England on a collaborative vision for the modern grid. His extensive experience in local government and economic development in Massachusetts has created a track record of achieving broad, bold visions.
