Silver Spring Networks, a networking platform and solutions provider for smart energy networks, says it has connected more than 1 million homes and businesses in Australia.

In partnership with CitiPower and Powercor Australia, Jemena, and United Energy, Silver Spring Networks is providing the standards-based IPv6 networking platform, software and services to support the rollout of the State Government of Victoria’s Advanced Metering Infrastructure program.

Silver Spring says its standards-based IPv6 networking platform supports distribution automation and outage-notification systems to enhance the reliability of the electrical grid for consumers. The platform will also support demand-side management.

"Silver Spring has enabled Jemena to reliably read well over 99 percent of our smart meters every day," says Paul Adams, managing director of Jemena. "Jemena shares that information with consumers via our Electricity Outlook portal, enabling them to understand their household energy usage and better manage their energy costs and greenhouse-gas emissions."
