Siemens Canada and the University of New Brunswick (UNB) will work together on two smart grid technology research projects.

The projects, both to be led by UNB's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, will focus on residential demand response and load shifting.

According to Siemens, the company and UNB are assembling project teams and developing proposals for funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council.

The company says the two research projects could begin as early as spring 2014.

Siemens notes that it has committed to investing up to C$2.5 million into academic research projects in the province of New Brunswick over the next five years in the form of funds and in-kind contributions, such as software and equipment, as well as sponsorships and human resources.
