Hawaiian Electric, in collaboration with DVI, a grid optimization subsidiary of power producer Dominion Resources, has executed a license agreement for the use of DVI's EDGE grid optimization solution.

According to Dominion, EDGE will be initially deployed for 5,200 customers as part of a larger grid modernization program that includes advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) from Silver Spring Networks and various other smart grid technologies.

As it relates to EDGE, Dominion notes that the program will highlight the benefits of AMI-based voltage optimization for energy savings, demand reduction and reliability.

"Implementing both AMI and DVI EDGE technology will help improve grid efficiencies and allow for further integration of renewables into Hawaiian Electric's resource mix," says Dan Giovanni, Hawaiian Electric operations senior vice president. "The resulting energy savings, combined with the ability to integrate more low-cost renewable energy, will allow Hawaii to reduce its overall dependency on expensive imported oil."
