The article looks at the potential benefits of the U.S. economic stimulus package of 2009 to firms. The capacity of Serious Materials for its energy-efficient windows that can reduce heating and cooling costs by almost 50% was raised by 10 times. Ice Energy chief executive officer (CEO) Frank Ramirez is expecting that the plan will provide funds to give them a chance to take risks on a new air conditioning (AC) system. The package is said to be beneficial to Silver Spring Networks whose smart meters have the ability to keep track of power consumption.
