GRID2020, a leading distribution transformer monitoring provider,
and Dominion Voltage, a grid optimization solutions provider, have
teamed up to bring grid optimization into additional markets.
"By taking advantage of the GRID2020 technology and integrating it into
our platform, we are able to offer our EDGE solution into markets
that were previously unreachable," said 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 rigorous research and evaluation, DVI concluded
that GRID2020 provides a superior intra-grid sensing platform to
effectively drive its EDGE solution within markets not possessing
In addition, GRID2020 OptaNODE DTM intra-grid sensors can be used
to optimize the grid as distributed generation and electric vehicles
become more prevalent.
GRID2020 and DVI have combined best-in-class technologies to deliver
effective demand response, energy conservation, and Volt/VAR offerings
to electric distribution utilities across the globe where smart
metering technology is absent. DVI's EDGE and GRID2020's
OptaNODE solutions uniquely empower utilities of all sizes to
optimize their distribution circuits and achieve significant savings.
"We've seen market recognition for the asset management and revenue
protection made possible by our OptaNODE DTM intra-grid sensors,"
said Scott Bussing, GRID2020 VP Sales. "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
The collaboration in technologies will provide a clear solution to the
demand for global voltage optimization. By utilizing the versatility of
the OptaNODE DTM intra-grid sensor to measure voltage data,
real-time information can be fed into the EDGE voltage optimization
