GRID20/20 Inc., a distribution transformer monitoring provider, and Dominion Voltage Inc. (DVI), a grid optimization solutions provider, says they have teamed up to bring grid optimization into new markets.

"By taking advantage of the GRID20/20 technology and integrating it into our platform, we are able to offer our EDGE solution into markets that were previously unreachable," says Todd Headlee, executive director of DVI. "This platform also lays the foundation for integrating distributed generation and electric vehicles onto the grid. We are excited about this new collaboration and the opportunity to work together to expand our reach in the grid optimization market." 

Following months of research and evaluation, DVI says it concluded that GRID20/20 provides a superior intra-grid sensing platform to effectively drive its EDGE solution within markets not possessing smart meters. In addition, the partners say GRID20/20 OptaNODE DTM intra-grid sensors can be used to optimize the grid as distributed generation and electric vehicles become more prevalent.

"Our DVI collaboration provides a system-wide voltage optimization strategy that leaves metering assets and processes intact, enabling utilities and their customers to achieve significant and sustainable energy and demand savings without disrupting operations,” adds Scott Bussing, GRID20/20’s vice president of sales.
