IT services giant Oracle was one of the companies that recently joined the Demand Response and Smart Grid Coalition (DRSG) in order to help the group raise awareness among stakeholders and policy makers of the ways in which smart grid technologies will improve the national electricity system and the way people use electricity.

The seven new members of DRSG are Oracle, IT consulting firm Enspiria Solutions, light management solutions firm Lutron, energy management solutions provider PCN Technology, IT solutions company KMC Controls, private equity firm Energy Capital Partners, and wireless services provider CalAmp.

DRSG executive director Dan Delurey welcomed the new members. "There is now widespread recognition that an effort to modernize our electricity system will pay enormous dividends in terms of job creation, lower energy bills, increased reliability and security of the grid, and decreased emissions of greenhouse gases," he said. "What we as an organization are now working to do is to help policymakers, utilities and stakeholders find specific ways to deploy the smart grid today and use it to address our economic challenges."
