Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) has selected smart grid analytics software from enterprise application software company C3 Energy.

According to C3, its smart grid analytics solution will be deployed across all of BGE's nearly two million electric and gas meters. The first phase of the deployment will begin in the second quarter of this year, when C3 Revenue Protection and C3 AMI Operations will be deployed.

The company notes that some of the focus areas of BGE's partnership with C3 will include advanced metering infrastructure operations, revenue assurance, customer experience and system planning. C3 adds that the capabilities will range from meter troubleshooting to evaluation of the effectiveness of demand response and energy efficiency programs.

"We selected C3 Energy as a strategic technology partner because of its unified, cloud-scale technology, comprehensive vision of smart grid analytics and deep understanding of the range of benefits that smart grid analytics can bring to BGE," comments A. Christopher Burton, vice president of smart grid and technology at BGE.
