he state of Vermont has emerged as a leader in energy innovation, with coordinated efforts underway in the areas of energy efficiency, the integration and development of renewable energy sources and the deployment of smart grid technologies.
These efforts reflect growing partnerships statewide and a deep commitment to energy sustainability. Vermont's efforts have been further strengthened by grants from the U.S. Department of Energy to support a utilities-led smart-grid effort called eEnergy Vermont and also a partnership with Sandia National Laboratories to help create the Nation's first statewide 21st-century energy infrastructure.
Specifically, the Sandia-Vermont partnership was created to: enhance multidisciplinary education and workforce development appropriate for a smart electricity infrastructure sector; promote research collaborations with the University of Vermont to further smart grid deployment; and form liaisons with private and public stakeholders to encourage information sharing, technology transfer and job growth in the electric power sector.
