Silver Spring Networks introduces smart grid solutions at DTECH

Sponsored by

At DistribuTECH, the utility industry's leading smart grid conference and exposition, Silver Spring Networks extended its Smart Energy Platform with new demand side management and distribution automation solutions, and expanded the tools, services and membership of its broad partner ecosystem.

Silver Spring, a networking platform and solutions provider, has connected more than 13 million homes and businesses worldwide with its IPv6 networking platform. Silver Spring is now extending its IPv6 networking platform to establish a communications and monitoring foundation for a variety of Smart City solutions as more devices become connected.

Key highlights of Silver Spring's news at DistribuTech 2013 include:

End-to-End DSM Portfolio

Silver Spring expanded its demand side management (DSM) portfolio with the introduction of the new UtilityIQ Demand Optimizer solution, an innovative Demand Response Management System that helps utilities manage peak load, implement real-time demand response initiatives and optimize load across all DR programs.

Silver Spring's DSM portfolio helps utilities that are increasingly looking to DSM programs and technologies to increase customer satisfaction, meet more stringent regulatory requirements, reduce peak consumption, manage new sources of demand and generation and improve their bottom lines.

Advanced Distribution Automation Solutions

Silver Spring further extended its distribution automation (DA) portfolio by unveiling a new transformer monitoring solution providing utilities real-time visibility into the performance of their distribution and substation transformers. Real-time transformer-level monitoring of temperature, current, and voltage enables utilities to pinpoint problem spots on the grid, proactively minimizing outages, and identify both technical and non-technical losses, improving energy efficiency.

Utilities deploying DA solutions atop a standards-based network that also supports advanced metering (AMI) and other smart grid initiatives benefit from significant capital and operational savings. Silver Spring's DA offerings also include advanced fault location grid sensors, secure IPv6-based bridges, a turn-key conservation voltage reduction (CVR) solution, a power monitoring application, and network automation software.

Expanding Silver Spring's Open Ecosystem

Silver Spring is delivering new tools and services to speed integration testing for partners and it is welcoming many new members to the global Silver Spring Partner Program. Silver Spring's open standards leadership provides customers extensive choice and has enabled utilities of all sizes and across all geographies to deploy the widest array of smart grid applications atop a common platform. Silver Spring and more than 30 of its partners are showcasing their innovations at DistribuTECH 2013.
