October 14, 2013, European Utility Week, Amsterdam – Two years after formation, G3-PLC Alliance is excited to present the key results of the year.
The number of G3-PLC Alliance’s members increased strongly, with new representatives from Asia
44 member companies have joined the G3-PLC Alliance since its launch two years ago. This is a direct result of growing interest from leaders in the smart grid industry and a remarkable increase of G3-PLC field tests and projects.
Utilities are more and more committed to G3-PLC. Asia constitutes a strong promoter for G3-PLC and a potential market as promising as Europe. Due to this strong interest, G3-PLC Alliance organized an Asian grand tour in June 2013 that allowed for educating 200 executives from Japan and China on the G3-PLC features.
