GRID20/20and Dominion Voltage, Inc. have teamed up to bring grid optimization into new markets.
"By taking advantage of the GRID20/20 technology and integrating it into our platform, we are able to offer our EDGE solution into markets that were previously unreachable," said Todd Headlee, executive director of DVI. "This platform also lays the foundation for integrating distributed generation and electric vehicles onto the grid. We are excited about this new collaboration and the opportunity to work together to expand our reach in the grid-optimization market."
Following months of rigorous research and evaluation, DVI concluded that GRID20/20 provides an intra-grid sensing platform to effectively drive its EDGE solution within markets not possessing smart meters.
In addition, GRID20/20 OptaNODE DTM intra-grid sensors can be used to optimize the grid as distributed generation and electric vehicles become more prevalent.
GRID20/20 and DVI have combined technologies to deliver demand response, energy conservation, and Volt/VAR offerings to electric distribution utilities across the globe where smart metering technology is absent. DVI's EDGE and GRID20/20's OptaNODE solutions empower utilities of all sizes to optimize their distribution circuits and achieve significant savings.
The collaboration in technologies will provide a clear solution to the demand for global voltage optimization. By utilizing the versatility of the OptaNODE DTM intra-grid sensor to measure voltage data, real-time information can be fed into the EDGE voltage optimization engine.
