DVI, a Dominion company that offers technology to utilities to plan, manage and validate grid efficiency, has been selected by the City of Naperville, Ill., to provide advanced applications through adoption of its EDGE software suite.

The company says EDGE will be used in conjunction with an existing Elster EnergyAxis advanced metering infrastructure deployment to provide Naperville with advanced conservation voltage reduction, planning, and measurement and verification capabilities.

EDGE is a modular and adaptive conservation voltage management solution that enables utilities to deploy incremental grid-side energy management without requiring behavioral changes or purchases by end-use consumers, according to DVI.

The implementation of the EDGE product in Naperville is expected to be complete in 2014.
