A delegation from the Demand Response and Smart Grid Coalition briefed attendees at the United Nations Convention on Climate Change yesterday in Cancun, Mexico, about how smart grids can reduce carbon footprints

DRSG, a trade association for demand response and smart grid providers, includes diverse membership such as Boeing, Cisco, Google, Lockheed Martin, Oracle and Siemens.

Dan Delurey, president of DRSG, said the delegation received official credentials from the U.N. to attend and become part of its official program for meetings Dec. 1. The meeting emphasized how smart grids can promote energy efficiency by giving better feedback about use for customers and better management of alternative energy sources for power companies.

Delurey said the meeting had a high attendance rate and plenty of engagement with representatives from around the world.

“Our reason for going to the U.N. Climate Conference was to make the climate community aware of how smart grid and demand response can help it get to where it wants to go,” Delurey said. “With renewable energy and energy efficiency being foundational building blocks of efforts to reduce emissions and address climate change, we want those on the front line of climate-policy developments to understand that it is in their interest to be supporters of smart grid.”
