GE and the Government of Ontario announced that GE will build a $40 million Grid IQ Innovation Center in Markham, Ontario, Canada. GE gave the name Grid IQ to its companywide commitment to providing customers with reliable and sustainable energy solutions.

The 200,000 sq ft center will develop and manufacture grid modernization technologies and will encompass a global testing and simulation laboratory. The building is expected to open in July 2012. The project will be supported by a $7.9 million grant from the Government of Ontario.

“A smart grid will greatly enhance the reliability of Ontario’s electricity system and provide real choices to Ontarians in managing their electricity consumption,” said Minister Duguid. “This investment reaffirms our commitment to creating a strong, reliable, clean energy system while cleaning up the air we breathe for future generations.”

Specific activities planned for the center include R&D in substation and distribution automation, electrical system protection and control, microgrid control, and cyber security.

The center will include expanded manufacturing facilities for GE’s Smart Grid Automation products, which will relocate from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
