The Pecan Street Project is an initiative charged with exploring the challenges Austin faces in building a modern energy system, including a “smart grid.” On September 25, 2008, the Austin City Council adopted a resolution directing the city to work with Environmental Defense Fund and other community stakeholders, to conduct an analysis of system improvements, technology advances, business models, and public investments that would enable Austin Energy to more fully develop its capacity for the distributed generation of clean energy.
You are invited to learn about and provide input to the Austin Pecan Street Project, the effort to implement 300 MW of renewable energy generation within the city limits.
Attendees will be provided information about the project, followed by an invitation to participate in breakout sessions encouraging discussion and soliciting feedback about the project’s technology, system design, financial and economic development aspects.
The project is a partnership among the City of Austin , Austin Energy, University of Texas , the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce and Environmental Defense Fund. The project has already garnered 11 corporate partnerships, including Dell Inc., IBM Corporation, Intel, Cisco Systems and others.
