National Grid unveils Sustainability Hub plan

Posted 5/27/13

WORCESTER, Mass. – National Grid last week unveiled plans for the future home of its Sustainability Hub, a 2,200-square-foot facility located within the company’s smart-grid pilot area in Worcester.

According to a news release, the space, located at 912 Main St., has been donated by Clark University. The company is hoping to provide “interactive education” about energy efficiency and emerging technologies. It is an integral part of the company’s smart-grid pilot – known as the Smart Energy Solutions Program – for 15,000 customers who choose to participate, according to the release.

National Grid’s Sustainability Hub will house interactive exhibits and educational materials to demonstrate the advanced technology offered as part of the program that will help customers maximize energy savings. This includes showing customers in-home energy-use displays, programmable thermostats and dynamic pricing options, National Grid said.

A-Z Corp., of Westborough, Mass., will serve as the Sustainability Hub design-build firm. The Worcester Business Development Corp. is coordinating construction to fast-track building the facility and is helping to identify resources that are donating materials, appliances and services.

The Smart Energy Solutions Program was developed in partnership with customers, the city of Worcester and other key parties. •
