Distribution Automation Project

Working with Silver Spring Networks, this project will combine advanced Distribution Automation features to minimize customer interruptions together with consumption and generation-intensive duty-cycle automated meter reading, enabling new customer services and a smarter integration of distributed generation supported by an active distribution system management, all using the same standards-based communications platform. Silver Spring’s open, IPv6 networking platform enables utilities of all sizes and across all geographies to deploy a broad set of smart grid applications atop a common platform. The project is part of EDP’s continued implementation of smart grid technology following the successful and award-winning InovGrid initiative.

We believe that Silver Spring is a partner that can help us to achieve our smart grid vision in this new project. Silver Spring's multi-application networking platform has demonstrated its performance in a previous pilot project and we now want to extend it to more customers and deliver a wide array of advanced smart grid services.
