A smart electricity grid for Christchurch?

A smart electricity grid for Christchurch?

APEC has issued a request for proposals for a 'smart grid roadmap' for Christchurch.

The RFP is titled Urban Development Smart Grid Roadmap and has a deadline of December 6.

The Christchurch rebuild blueprint unveiled earlier this year hints at a denser, greener future and a smart electricity grid would dovetail nicely with that.

Smart grids allow for greater control and efficiency of power and better integration of renewable energy sources.
