A great idea is often symbolized with a light bulb. In Los Alamos, that light bulb radiates a whole new light; in fact, it seems to have a green tint.
The Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities was awarded the 2010 Energy Leadership Award from the New Mexico Association of Energy Engineers (NMAEE) Tuesday in Albuquerque. The award was in recognition of DPU Manager John Arrowsmith’s efforts in the Los Alamos Smart Grid demonstration project.
Arrowsmith could not attend the award ceremony so James Alarid, DPU deputy utilities manager for engineering, accepted the award. The award recognizes that the Smart Grid project is becoming a reality and he said Arrowsmith is a major player is achieving this fact. Arrowsmith has worked extensively with Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), the county’s partner in the project.
A total of six projects were honored during the award ceremony but what makes Los Alamos’ Smart Grid shine is that it is one of the first projects of its kind to actually get implemented, Alarid said.
Don Swick of the NMAEE said Jack McGowan, president of the New Mexico chapter of the AEE, nominated Los Alamos for the award.
