NEMA Senate Testimony Available for Review

As promised, here's the NEMA testimony given today by Evan Gaddis before the Senate Energy and Resources Committee on smart grid.

His primary goal was to tell the senators that technologies are available today but aren't being deployed due to uncertainty over cost recovery and over standards. The federal government can manage the first issue through incentives, while accredited SDOs like NEMA can manage the second issue effectively if the government will formally authorize them to accelerate critical standards development.  As Evan stated, “NEMA and our member companies stand ready to deliver the standards that will make the smart grid a national reality."

Ball's in the government's court now.
