The New Energy and Industrial Technology and Development Organization of Japan, the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities (DPU) and the Los Alamos National Laboratory will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony today for a $52 million international smart grid project in Los Alamos, N.M.

According to the DPU, the Los Alamos smart grid demonstration project consists of a 2 MW of photovoltaic power, 8.3 MWh of batteries and controls, and a “smart house,” which includes smart appliances that allow for electric demand in the house to be responsive to smart grid signals.

For two years, U.S. and Japanese partners have worked together to build the Los Alamos smart grid, which will demonstrate how to provide a significant portion of renewable power on the electric grid to meet a community's residential needs, the DPU adds.
