Con Edison Selects Siemens and TIBCO to Provide a Smart Grid Integration Solution
PALO ALTO, CA, Feb 06, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Siemens Smart Grid Division and TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX)
will provide proven Smart Grid enterprise integration services to
Consolidated Edison (Con Edison) for a Smart Grid demonstration
project. The project is a result of Con Edison Company of New York
(CECONY) receiving funding for the Smart Grid demonstration project
from the Department of Energy through the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act (ARRA) stimulus program.
Siemens and TIBCO will provide a fully integrated and secure Smart
Grid solution for Con Edison using standards-based software and
technologies. Together with Siemens and TIBCO, Con Edison will be
able to improve Smart Grid reliability and provide customers with
greater visibility, flexibility and value; enhance control
capabilities for existing Smart Grid assets and manage daily system
peaks via demand response; and determine how to best apply developing
"We are proud to share our extensive integration experience with Con
Edison in an effort to provide them with a cost effective and proven
integration solution," says Thierry Godart, president of Siemens
Smart Grid Division in the United States. "Our integration offering
has been refined through years of experience to provide our customers
with innovative and secure Smart Grid solutions."
With TIBCO's enterprise messaging technology, Con Edison gains a
scalable, interoperable integration framework that enables the
real-time flow of information across deployed assets for enhanced
decision making capabilities to maintain a healthy power
infrastructure. In addition to TIBCO's technologies, Siemens will
deliver its Smart Grid visualization capabilities, providing a
lightweight, browser-based user interface.
"This project marks our dedication to providing safe, reliable and
efficient energy to our customers by enhancing our systems'
capabilities," said Patricia Robison, Project Manager, Con Edison.
"We look forward to Siemens' and TIBCO's expertise in helping us meet
our Smart Grid project objectives."
As proven leaders, Siemens and TIBCO are able to bring Smart Grid
integration know-how and methodology that can be implemented across a
diverse set of situations. This expertise will enable Siemens to help
Con Edison deploy the functionality and technology proposed for the
Smart Grid Demonstration Project.
"New York is home to one of the most critical finance infrastructures
in the world and the most pervasive big building management systems,"
says Murat Sonmez, executive vice president, Global Field Operations,
TIBCO. "The ability to use real-time data to manage system assets,
detect early warning signs and act immediately to resolve potential
problems before they occur, is necessary to maintain predictable
power and help keep businesses running. With TIBCO and Siemens, Con
Edison is developing an architecture that will result in use cases
that can act as a blue print for other urban areas."
Implementation of the Smart Grid integration solution began in August
2011. The project is estimated to be completed in May 2013.
