Enbala Power Networks wins $1.8 million for Ontario smart grid project

Toronto, June 25, 2012 — Enbala Power Networks, a Toronto-based company, has been awarded $1.8 million towards a smart grid project to advance the grid's intelligence using large electricity users (loads) and their process storage.

The electricity users' process storage will balance the grid's real-time supply and demand for electricity across Ontario, helping to green the grid through the integration of renewable power sources.

As part of the provincial government's plan, the Ontario Smart Grid Fund is investing in the revitalization of the electric power grid and creating jobs by leveraging Ontario's clean energy leaders to continue to grow and establish the smart grid industry.

Enbala's Smart Grid Project will connect 90 different commercial, industrial and institutional electricity users through a smart grid platform. The platform makes use of the electricity users' process storage to manage the complexity of continuous electricity balance across the province.

The Ontario Smart Grid Fund awarded projects in the following categories; integrating distributed energy resources, behind the meter, regional integration, data management and grid automation.
