Silver Spring Networks Inc., a networking platform and solutions provider for smart energy networks, has entered the next phase of its project to provide a networking platform to support a new EDP Distribuicao smart grid initiative in Portugal.

This phase will take place in the municipality of Batalha. Silver Spring says the project will combine distribution automation with consumption and generation-intensive duty-cycle automated meter reading, enabling new customer services and a smarter integration of distributed generation supported by an active distribution system management, all using Silver Spring's IPv6 networking platform.

"We believe that Silver Spring is a partner that can help us to achieve our smart grid vision in this new project," says Joao Torres, CEO of EDP Distribuicao. "Silver Spring's multi-application networking platform has demonstrated its performance in a previous pilot project, and we now want to extend it to more customers and deliver a wide array of advanced smart grid services."
