LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) — Toshiba and Kyocera are among 19 companies that have been chosen to work on smart grid demonstration projects in New Mexico.
The companies were selected Wednesday by the Japanese New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization. They will collaborate with the state of New Mexico, Los Alamos and Sandia national laboratories, Los Alamos County and others.
Gov. Bill Richardson said the smart grid projects will change the way power is managed and put New Mexico at the forefront of the world's energy future.
