Ventyx, an ABB company, has unveiled two new solutions for the electric utility industry: Ventyx Distribution System Operations and Ventyx Outage Lifecycle Management.

According to the company, the Ventyx Distribution System Operations solution will help utilities integrate the fast-growing number of renewable and distributed energy resources into their grids in order to balance supply and demand. The solution is being developed with strategic input and testing by E.ON, a large investor-owned power and gas company that supports more than 26 million customers in 30 countries.

"We have already begun implementing Ventyx's software solutions to support our next-generation smart grid initiative at E.ON, and anticipate we'll be operational by early 2014 for initial testing and development,” says Peter Sigenstam, vice president and head of E.ON Innovation Centre Distribution.

Ventyx says its Outage Lifecycle Management solution helps cover outage management processes from planning and preparation, to communications with customers, through to final restoration of service and regulatory reporting. The solution is being developed with strategic guidance by utility companies, including Detroit-based DTE Energy.
