Silver Spring Networks has released its UtilityIQ Voltage Optimizer, a turnkey conservation voltage reduction solution for utilities.

This new solution, in conjunction with Dominion Voltage Inc.'s EDGE software, leverages real-time, premise-level smart grid data to understand voltage levels across the distribution network and adjust grid devices to minimize energy waste.

The UtilityIQ Voltage Optimizer leverages the distributed intelligence of Silver Spring Communications Modules already deployed across the network, thus requiring no new voltage sensors throughout the grid, the company adds.

UtilityIQ Voltage Optimizer combines real-time voltage level alerts from UtilityIQ Power Monitor with polled data from UtilityIQ Advanced Metering Manager.

Together, the company says these data create a holistic understanding of at-premise voltage levels throughout the distribution network. Dominion Voltage Inc.’s EDGE software, which is fully integrated into the solution, then analyzes that data to identify areas where it can tune distribution automation devices and optimize voltage levels.
