New industry alliance delivers power system versatility

New industry alliance delivers power system versatility
The term ‘co-opetition’ has been around for a while; it refers to how companies that are in competition with each other can still work cooperatively, to improve the technology that enables their shared market. It normally happens when a particular technology reaches an inflection point. The ZigBee Alliance is an example in the electronics industry.
