Analyst: Paul Budde


While in Washington during September 2008, I arrived at the midst of the financial crisis. The key reason for my visit was Gridweek, where I was invited to present a paper on Smart Grid Australia. I arrived during the weekend Paulson announced his rescue packages and the news was discussed continuously on TV and in the street. The crisis will have a major effect on future infrastructure developments. I spent some time discussing this with some of the local experts during my visit, and discovered that another headache for the new administration will be the switch-off of Analogue TV in February 2009.
