AMT-SYBEX's Affinity Suite has been chosen by UK Power Networks to deliver the optimization and control platform at the center of the utility company's Smarter Network Storage project, which has been awarded £13.2 million of funding from the Low Carbon Network Fund. The ground-breaking project is one of the next steps toward the smarter grid.
AMT-SYBEX has operated in the utility, energy and infrastructure industries since 1990 and creates enterprise software that enables its clients to meet evolving business challenges around enterprise mobility, smart grids, and enterprise asset management. The Affinity Suite was built on industry knowledge to deliver technical innovation and to help create utility networks fit for the future. It processes data flows for 85% of the UK energy retail market.
UK Power Networks delivers electricity to homes from the Wash in the east to the River Arun on the south coast, connecting 8 million people to the National Grid. AMT-SYBEX, selected following a strategic procurement during the project development, has been working with UK Power Networks and its predecessor organisations for almost 20 years and was a natural partner to help UK Power Networks realise the value of smart grid technologies.
