The Networked Grid 100: The Movers and Shakers of the Smart Grid in 2012: [pagebreak:Networked Grid 100] As

While the Department of Energy’s $4 billion smart grid stimulus may be allocated and flowing out the door, Energy Secretary Steven Chu hasn’t lost his importance to the development of the U.S. smart grid industry. Most notably this staunch advocate of energy efficiency and clean energy, winner of a Nobel Prize in physics and the former director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has spearheaded DOE’s ARPA-E program, which includes amongst its grant recipients several startups developing energy storage and power electronics technologies that, if brought to fruition, could redefine the smart grid. P.S. -- when Chu was a research scientist at Berkeley, he reprogrammed his building’s energy management system to make sure his lab temperature didn’t vary, so he knows building energy efficiency first-hand.
