3TIER, UW and WSU are part of $178M smart grid project

3TIER, a Seattle-based provider of renewable energy assessment and power forecasting services, and the University of Washington and Washington State University are among 12 Northwest utilities and several companies taking part in a smart grid demonstration project which received $89 million in stimulus funding from the U.S. Department of Energy. The Pacific Northwest Smart Grid Demonstration Project, led by Battelle Memorial Institute in Richland, Wash., spans five states and will involve 60,000 consumers in a project that will validate new technologies and approaches for energy efficiency. Of the approximately $178 million total project cost, half will be cost-shared by the participants.
