Smart water, energy and electric vehicles are turning out to be a major growth sector in the Research Triangle region.
Charles Hayes is President and CEO of The Research Triangle Regional Partnership. He says all the growth in smart grid and clean technology caught them by surprise.
“We quite frankly didn’t know what we had until people from around the world started calling us and asking us to be involved in various things. So you know, we said, let’s do a little studying and see what we have here," said Hayes.
