Was Smart Grid Funding Misspent?Quicklink submitted by Mari Eliza Permalink
|Greentech Media talks to the author of a new report that calls smart meters obsolete.
A recent report from the National Institute for Science, Law & Public Policy came with a provocative press release title: "Smart Grid Funding Misspent on Obsolete Technologies."
The press release got plenty of attention from the utility and smart grid news circles, but it's tough to tell if any of those actually read the report, "Getting Smarter About the Smart Grid," written by Timothy Schoechle, a consultant in computer engineering and standardization and former faculty member of the University of Colorado's College of Engineering and Applied Science.
The report primarily takes aim at smart meters, which got the lion share of stimulus funding.
