"By taking advantage of the GRID2020 technology and integrating it into our platform, we are able to offer our EDGE solution into markets that were previously unreachable," said Todd Headlee, executive director of DVI. "This platform also lays the foundation for integrating distributed generation and electric vehicles onto the grid. We are excited about this new collaboration and the opportunity to work together to expand our reach in the grid-optimization market."
Following months of rigorous research and evaluation, DVI concluded that GRID2020 provides a superior intra-grid sensing platform to effectively drive its EDGE solution within markets not possessing smart meters.
In addition, GRID2020 OptaNODE DTM intra-grid sensors can be used to optimize the grid as distributed generation and electric vehicles become more prevalent.
GRID2020 and DVI have combined best-in-class technologies to deliver effective demand response, energy conservation, and Volt/VAR offerings to electric distribution utilities across the globe where smart metering technology is absent. DVI's EDGE and GRID2020's OptaNODE solutions uniquely empower utilities of all sizes to optimize their distribution circuits and achieve significant savings.
