New Smart Grid Stimulus Channel Monitors Progress and Impact of Stimulus Awards

October 29, 2009

October 29, 2009 - Telvent (NASDAQ: TLVT), the IT company for a sustainable and secure world, has announced today it is sponsoring a channel to monitor the progress and impact of stimulus awards for Smart Grid projects around the country. This one-stop resource for industry professionals, consumers and policymakers to track stimulus money and results is being produced by, the Web's most comprehensive source of stimulus news, analysis and tools.

The newly launched Stimulus Channel on provides constant updates, specialized content and timely tools for locating funding, projects and/or partners for the build-out of tomorrow's grid. As those projects begin to report progress (as required by the Recovery Act), the site will also provide a one-stop clearinghouse of the findings and results.

From the billions of dollars parceled out by the federal government to the millions being allocated by state and local governments, the Stimulus Channel makes it easy to surface actionable content. One example: The channel features stimulus toolkits for all 50 states, with links to state energy offices, regulatory bodies and utilities, plus local media coverage of energy issues and initiatives and summaries of state energy projects, RFPs and awards.

"We know how important this stimulus information is for the industry," said Larry Stack, president, Telvent Energy. "At Telvent, our focus is to help our customers maximize their Smart Grid investments. Aligning with the sector's leading content provider was a natural fit for us."

"This may be our country's last, best chance to renew the electric power system and make it ready for a future of renewable energy, electric vehicles, and global competition," suggests Founding Editor Jesse Berst. "With this new channel we have made a pledge to cover all things with regards to the stimulus. It's a big job and we're pleased to have Telvent as a partner."
