Place-based Bills & Agreements: Defining Characteristic #2 ...
Nearly every place-based bill and initiative examined thus far focuses on the need for “landscape-scale” restoration.  From a collaboration standpoint, restoration is a common zone of agreement among several of these groups.  The scale is sometimes defined by reference to (sub)watersheds or acreage (e.g., 25,000 to 50,000 acres) for which restoration projects should be planned and implemented.  Though the term “landscape-scale” is now fashionable, it is often used with some imprecision.

A Win-Win Smart Grid Vision
A smart grid is best built with an eye toward technologies, standards and services of the future. In order to ensure utilities and consumers both win in the smart grid game, it's essential that all players in the ecosystem consider the various moving parts involved as energy networks across the globe evolve. An interoperable infrastructure approach will rapidly lead to innovations and achievements, while limited, closed approaches will ultimately kill innovation and benefit very few. It's not just about smart meters. Smart metering is an essential part and the foundation of the smart grid itself--offering increased ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
