Silver Spring Networks to deploy smart grid network for CPFL

Sponsored by

Sao Paulo, July 30, 2012 — CPFL Energia selected Silver Spring Networks for a foundational smart grid networking project across the company's distribution area in Brazil, including parts of the states of Sao Paulo, Rio Grande do Sul, Paraná and Minas Gerais.

The standards-based Silver Spring Smart Energy Platform will enable CPFL to deploy a robust smart grid infrastructure for a diverse range of commercial and industrial customers throughout its concession area.

After the initial widespread commercial and industrial deployment, this already deployed infrastructure can be used for the expansion of smart grid coverage for low voltage (residential) clients and can facilitate new distribution grid automation projects.

CPFL Energia is a holding company that, through its subsidiaries, distributes, generates and commercializes energy in the Brazilian electricity sector, and also operates in the segment of value-added services.

With 13 percent of the market share, CPFL Energia heads the distribution segment through its eight distributors, which serve 569 municipalities in the States of São Paulo, Rio Grande do Sul, Paraná and Minas Gerais.
