High-ranking government, utility and technology executives were on hand as GE (GE) and the city of Yangzhou, China announced the grand opening of Yangzhou’s Smart Grid Demonstration Center.

The center is intended to comply with 2009’s U.S.-China Clean Energy Announcements, calling for far reaching cooperation between the two countries to promote clean energy. The demonstration center includes an array of GE products that affect energy in homes, on power lines and in a utility’s network control center. It also demonstrates communications infrastructure that can enable citywide solutions beyond energy, such as voice and data applications.

Grid infrastructure and control technologies in the demonstration included automated outage identification and restoration software, field-force automation and deployment systems and grid-wide network management software.

The project kicked off with a formal agreement-signing ceremony in early December of 2009.
