Smart grid firms multiply in N.C. Research Triangle

There are now 96 smart grid firms operating in the North Carolina “Research Triangle.” The region, located in and around the Raleigh–Durham–Chapel Hill areas of the state, had 59 smart grid companies in operation in 2011 — a 60 percent increase in two years.

The total count is 200 firms when including companies that specialize in efficient water management and efficient transportation. This is according to a survey conducted by the Research Triangle Regional Partnership (RTRP).

Fourteen percent of those companies have been established in the last five years, suggesting quick growth in one of the main sectors of the cleantech industry in the region.
