Arguably the most famous grid plan in history is the plan for New York City formulated in the Commissioners' Plan of 1811, a visionary proposal by the state legislature of New York for the development of most of upper Manhattan.
In the westward development of the United States, the use of the grid plan was nearly universal in the construction of new towns.

By 2600 BC, Mohenjo-daro and Harappa of the Indus Valley Civilization (in Pakistan and North India) was built with blocks divided by a grid of straight streets running north-south and east-west.
The streets of these major cities were laid out in a perfect grid pattern, comparable to that of present day New York City.
Charged with the task, Edwin Waller designed a fourteen block grid that fronted the river on 640 acres (2.6 sq km).

 Northoftampa: Pasco: Road grid plan tries to bypass gridlock
The key is to build a grid of roads, in some cases well before the projected thousands of new homes arrive, to shunt traffic off State Road 54 and U.S. That's the position of the chamber as reflected by Tim Hayes, an attorney who serves as the chamber's governmental affairs specialist.
Plans call for extending and improving Overpass, Chancey and Curley roads, as well as SR 56 and the West Zephyrhills Bypass.
The county's goal is to extend and upgrade two lanes of Lake Patience in 2006, with plans to widen the road to four lanes later.

 Oracle pushes grid plan - ZDNet UK News
Oracle executives have called grid computing the most significant new business technology to come along since the Internet, and they say Oracle is making its most innovative technology leap in a decade with a host of new database and related software products it's readying around the grid concept.
In a grid world, the idle time of hundreds of servers and databases could be pooled and allocated at different times for separate applications, dynamically adjusting to whichever system demanded the most processing power at the time.
One advantage of grid computing, Phillips added, is that companies can adopt the technology at their own pace by gradually replacing big, expensive servers that act as "islands of computation" with cheaper computers that share processing power over the grid.

The grid assessment measures the potential for practicing grid solutions within a corporation, determines whether the corporation is ready to embark on such a grid program, and defines where to focus efforts to gain the maximum benefit.
The result of the grid assessment can be used as the basis for defining corporate grid goals, grid adoption strategies, the business domains where a grid might be most effective, and the basis for a grid implementation plan.
Capacity planning and trend analysis are important for predicting future grid performance with new architecture and services, in order to plan acquisitions to meet future demands.

 The Hindu Business Line : National grid plan may get derailed
Any deviation in the grid frequency position beyond prescribed levels magnifies the chances of a grid collapse, with the northern grid narrowly averting flouts in the region on at least two occasions during the last six months.
According to the data, the northern grid has witnessed rampant overdrawal by States such as Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Haryana, with the situation worsening in December (when grid frequency was lower than limits 58.51 per cent of the time during the month) and January (54.87 per cent of the time).
The grid frequency is a real-time measure of how well the member States are adhering to their respective allocations for drawing power from generating stations within the region.

Grids are the big theme at the OpenWorld customer conference in San Francisco, which got under way Monday.
The appeal of grid computing, according to Oracle, IBM and others, is that it could save companies money by making their data centers less expensive to run.
He underscored Oracle's belief that the time is "ripe" for the concept to take hold among businesses because of the advent of low-cost computers such as the so-called blade servers from Dell, Hewlett-Packard, IBM and Sun Microsystems that generally cost less than $2,000 a box.

These are extremely common in towns of the 18th century or later, which have often been created as part of a city plan, such as the New Town in Edinburgh, or the many towns and cities in Australia, the United States or Canada.

Although it is being created to support the most challenging computations needed for science and engineering, the grid should become a resource-sharing model that will be just as applicable in businesses or in the home.

 PG&E Slow to Embrace Davis' Grid Takeover Plan / Assets might bring more via bankruptcy
State takeover of California's utility-owned power grid is being held up by PG&E's concern that it could lose much of its economic base -- and corporate identity -- along with its high-voltage power lines, industry experts say.
The state's other big utility, Southern California Edison, quickly embraced the governor's plan and suggested that sale of its grid would go a long way toward "restoring normalcy to California's electricity situation." A similar deal between the state and the parent company of San Diego Gas & Electric is said to be close to completion.
The main issues revolve around what are known as bypasses, the ability of big power users to sidestep a utility by forging their own connections to independent power suppliers.
