Energy Expert Positions Fremont as Leader in Clean Energy [Global Data Point]
(Global Data Point Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) It's no secret that California is ahead of the pack when it comes to clean tech leadership. In fact, the City of Fremont recently announced an ambitious clean technology report to spearhead California and the rest of the nation in powering communities with next-generation energy solutions. Renowned energy expert Christine Hertzog of Smart Grid Library created the report and named Fremont the frontrunner. Hertzog's analysis and evaluation of Fremont's Smart Grid ecosystem took an in-depth look at the following six sections: semiconductors, communications, solar, energy storage, embedded energy efficiency/light emitting diodes (LEDs) and smart transportation. According to her research, Fremont has a number of thriving ecosystems poised to make monumental strides in Smart Grid solutions. The Smart Grid encompasses a wide range of technologies that modernizes our existing electric, gas and water grids, presenting a multi-billion dollar market opportunity for companies with innovative solutions.
The City already has an established strength in several clean tech industries that are significant technology foundations for Smart Grid – most notably in the areas of semiconductors, solar and communications. In fact, based on her findings, Hertzog expects the Smart Grid wireless and wired technologies market to grow to $13 billion by 2014.
