Boulder, Colorado is the first U.S and probably world city to embrace Smart Grid comprehensively.

Recently at the workshop, Bangalore Electricity Supply Company MD, Tushar Girinath confirmed that the company will develop a road map for transforming the city's utility network into Smart Grid.

The project requirements budget is scaled upto 100 Crore ( 1 Billion Rs) and will be carried out with private and public partnership. The workshop was attended by IBM, TATA, C-STEP,(Center of Study of Science,Technology, and Policy) CPRI (Central Power Research Institute and PAC.
