Silver Spring Networks, Varentec partner on grid optimization solution

Varentec Inc. and Silver Spring Networks are integrating Varentec’s Grid Edge Control Solution with Silver Spring’s IPv6-based smart grid networking platform to provide utilities with greater Voltage/VAR Optimization and Conservation Voltage Reduction (CVR) capabilities.

Varentec’s ENGO field hardware will leverage Silver Spring’s multi- application network to help utilities proactively achieve better grid control and also manage renewable energy sources, including solar photovoltaic, on the grid.

Together, the distribution automation solution driven by Silver Spring and Varentec technologies will offer utilities a combination of control and monitoring capabilities that will help utilities achieve energy conservation and improve grid reliability.

Silver Spring has over 18.5 million IPv6-enabled devices delivered for smart grid networks across five continents. Varentec’s Grid Edge Control technology has been deployed at multiple utilities in the U.S., and several countries around the world.
