Innovation based on the use of smart grids (next-generation electric power networks) is being pursued internationally in concert with the "Green New Deal" measures proposed by the Obama administration in the USA in 2009. In particular, smart cities are seen as representing a next generation of geographically localized energy and infrastructural systems. Smart cities are attracting attention for offering a new environmentally conscious form of urban living. Hitachi is pursuing a growth strategy for the global market based around its Social Innovation Business, and in April 2010 established the Smart City Business Management Division to create a range of solutions, starting with proposals for demonstration trials. EVs are an important element of the urban functions that make up a smart city. Hitachi has developed a solution for the management and operation of EV charging systems which it has already deployed commercially, and is working on the development of further new solutions.
