Local microgrid starts on $27 million

-A A +A
By John Bartlit

Projects in the mountain town of Los Alamos shape strong tools for tomorrow. New evidence is the $27 million in contracts among Los Alamos County, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), the state of New Mexico and an alliance of 19 Japanese companies.
Jointly they will install and run parts of a “smart” electric grid, or microgrid, in town. “Smart” means it works on real-time data. Real-time data are touted in TV ads by techno-giants IBM and GE. Old-time data are data compiled yearly or daily that show where we were then, whereas “real-time data” are data gathered and applied each moment to steer things for the next moment.
Timely data let electric systems do more. Thus we see $27 million coming in for real-life testing of parts of a Smart Grid. If you know Smart Grids like the back of your hand, scan quickly to ‘B’ below.
