Commitment to Action

The China Smart Grid Cooperative

Commitment by

Duke Energy Corporation

In 2008, JUCCCE and Duke Energy committed to launching the JUCCCE China Smart Grid Cooperative to accelerate the interest and development of Smart Grid in China. China spends $35 billion each year on new power grid construction, making it the world's largest untapped Smart Grid market.
In Nov 2008, JUCCCE and Duke Energy held their first group forum in Beijing with Chinese decision makers and international experts. The success of this forum and JUCCCE's follow-up discussions have driven tremendous momentum at the State Grid. In January, the head of the State Grid announced that Smart Grid will be part of their 2009 strategy. The second JUCCCE Cooperative forum will be in June 2009 in Shanghai.
The JUCCCE China Smart Grid Cooperative now has a core group of members including State Grid, Shanghai Municipal Power, East China Power Grid, Cisco, Kema, Quanta Technology, IBM, Augmentum, McKinsey, PG&E, BPL Global, and others.
