Is North Carolina’s Research Triangle the Smart Grid’s Silicon Valley?

Raleigh could be the smart grid's future Silicon Valley has traditionally been the epicenter of American smart grid technology innovation, but a new report suggests North Carolina’s Research Triangle may deserve the title and be key to the industry’s economic future. Duke University’s “Core Firms in the Research Triangle Region ” report highlights a smart grid industry thriving thousands of miles away from Silicon Valley. At least 60 companies are working on smart grid technology and implementation in the region, with a conservative estimate of 3,000 employees at 101 locations in the 13-country Triangle region. That figure is roughly the same as the Bay Area’s estimated 3,030 smart grid jobs , and does not include IBM’s 10,000 regional employees, many of whom are focused on smart grid technology through the company’s “Smarter Planet” initiative.
