“A modern, high-tech electric infrastructure is essential for Chicago’s global economic competitiveness.” ComEd and GE are partnering on a $200 million contract for GE to manufacture and deliver approximately 4 million smart meters, which ComEd will install for all customers beginning this September through 2021. GE will assemble the smart meters in Chicago at a south side factory, creating approximately 50 jobs. Smart meters provide timely data to electricity users about how much power they’re using, giving customers more control over their energy use. Silver Spring Networks, which provides the technology platform for ComEd’s smart grid network, will also open a new facility in Chicago that will house dozens of new technology jobs and a next-generation network operations center to serve Smart Grid projects in Illinois and across the Midwest. That facility, which was announced by Mayor Emanuel in January 2012, is being implemented now and is currently being staffed. “Our $2.6 billion Smart Grid investment will benefit Chicago–and all our customers–by strengthening the local economy, creating jobs, attracting new businesses to Chicago and giving more choice and control to our customers,” said Anne Pramaggiore, president and CEO, ComEd.

A High-Level Committee , headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh , decided that a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) will be created for this purpose. According to the original proposal, the design and development of the aircraft was expected to cost Rs 4,355 crore and series production would entail further expenditure of Rs 3,200 crore. The development of the aircraft is targeted to be completed in five years and further two years would be for trials, sources said. The Committee took “a major strategic decision for the development of a civilian aircraft, of a 70-100 seater range to begin with, in India”, a PMO statement said here. “The idea is to house the development and production in an SPV that would be created for this purpose. The design capabilities in National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and other institutions in the country would be utilised for this,” it said. Addressing the meeting, Singh said, “I agree that we should start working for the future, even if it takes time and even though there are uncertainties on the horizon.” The PMO statement said development and production partnerships with Indian private sector firms as well as overseas institutions is envisaged in the project. “Efforts will be made to leverage the offsets that are available in the defence sector for building critical domestic capabilities in high precision manufacturing and avionics,” it said.
