    BURLINGTON — Burlington is getting a $400,000 “Smarter Cities” grant from the philanthropic arm of IBM that will be used to streamline energy efficiency efforts. The ideas will be shared across Vermont.

    Mayor Miro Weinberger announced the grant Wednesday.

    The money will bring a global team of IBM analysts to Burlington for three weeks in 2013 to look for broad patterns about the city’s energy use.

    Weinberger said IBM’s expertise could help transform the economy in ways that can’t yet be conceived of.
