Redwood City, CA, April 20, 2012 – Silver Spring Networks, a leading smart grid networking platform and solutions provider, was recently awarded a PR News CSR Award in the Stakeholder Engagement category for its “Connect Transform” smart grid consumer engagement program. The award honors the most outstanding communications efforts powering corporate social responsibility (CSR) and green initiatives.
Silver Spring’s award-winning “Connect Transform” program was created to help its utility customers educate a diverse group of audiences on the importance of energy efficiency, the benefits of the smart grid, and how it will meaningfully impact their lives. As utilities modernize their energy infrastructure, integrate renewable energy sources, and empower consumer choice, it becomes increasingly imperative to engage and educate end-consumers on the role they can play in driving energy efficiency.
“Silver Spring is proud to not only deliver the leading smart grid technologies, but to also empower utilities to engage even more deeply with consumers,” said Lisa Magnuson, Senior Director of Brand Programs, Silver Spring Networks. “We’re helping utilities better educate consumers on energy efficiency – and now smarter consumers are making smarter choices with the smart grid.”
Silver Spring’s innovative consumer engagement program was developed in collaboration with its agency partners Blue Practice and Finn Partners. The program was also named a finalist in the Community Relations category for the PR News Daily Awards, which will be announced Sept. 11, 2012.
The PR News CSR Awards event took place April 17 in Washington, D.C.
