Magnolia resident works on national smart-grid projects

Magnolia resident Allen Goldstein has been selected by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Md., to lead national projects on energy calibration through the nation’s smart grid. 

In addition to convening national conversations on global warming, he will work on international standards.
