BPL Global participates in EDF smart grid project

Pittsburgh, September 8, 2011 — BPL Global, a smart grid technology company, has joined forces with Delta Dore, Edelia, Saft, Schneider Electric, Tenesol and Electricite de France through its French subsidiary BPL Global EMEA to deploy a smart grid project on the islands of Corsica, Guadeloupe and La Reunion.

The $42.7 million project, named Millener, will integrate management of a thousand distributed energy resources at the edge of the distribution grid. Various combinations of distributed resources will be deployed at participating consumer premises including solar generation, battery storage and energy load controllers.

Private electric consumers enrolled in the program will also be provided with visualization of their energy consumption, allowing them to monitor their electricity use in real time. EDF will manage all these distributed energy resources with BPLG's Power SG platform as a centralized control system deployed in each region to optimize operational, financial and environmental performance of the electrical network.

For the EDF project, BPLG's Power SG software platform and Power SG iDER solution will be the centralized control system. It will integrate management of grid and customer energy assets including customer load, energy storage and renewables.

In addition, BPLG will deploy our direct load controllers for energy efficient management of residential air conditioning and heating loads. BPLG's Power SG iDER solution is being deployed with FirstEnergy at their Jersey Central Power & Light and Metropolitan Edison operating companies.
