Silver Spring Networks has launched the Speed-to-Value program, a new initiative the company says will enable utilities to scope, deploy, test and measure specific solutions to extract greater return on investment from their smart grid efforts.

The Speed-to-Value program includes four initial offerings:

Distribution Automation Speed-to-Value Solution: The company says this offering can help utilities jump-start a new protection and control application across several feeders and includes networking devices, configuration and management software, field tools, and deployment and testing services.

Fault Location Speed-to-Value Solution: This offering includes four triplets of FCIs, a cellular take-out point, cloud-based access to the management application and monitoring service.

Load Control Speed-to-Value Solution: The company says this offering enables a scale test, including 10,000 Direct-to-Grid load control switches, head-end management software, field tools, and deployment and project management services.

Conservation Voltage Reduction Speed-to-Value Solution: Silver Spring’s UtilityIQ Voltage Optimizer CVR solution leverages real-time premise-level AMI data to deliver up to 4% energy savings, compared to CVR’s typical 1% to 2%, the company says.
