Recently, I’ve had more opportunities to write for Earth2Tech, and I’ve been covering some of the big IT companies’ role in smart grid. This morning, Cisco announced its smart-grid strategy, and I have a writeup about the plan over at E2T. Check it out here. While I’ve (mostly) focused on what the Cisco plan means for startups in the space, there’s a bunch of other good coverage out there as well. Jesse Berst’s take over at Smart Grid News is particularly fantastic.
