CPFL Selects Silver Spring Networks to Deploy Smart Grid Network

Aug 02, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Silver Spring Networks, a networking platform and solutions provider for smart energy networks, announced that it has been selected by CPFL Energia for a foundational smart grid networking project across the company's distribution area in Brazil, including parts of the states of Sao Paulo, Rio Grande do Sul, Parana and Minas Gerais.


According to a release, the standards-based Silver Spring Smart Energy Platform will enable CPFL to deploy a smart grid infrastructure for a diverse range of commercial and industrial customers throughout its concession area. After the initial widespread commercial and industrial deployment, this already deployed infrastructure can be used for the expansion of smart grid coverage for Low Voltage (residential) clients and can facilitate new Distribution Grid automation projects.

CPFL Energia is a holding company that, through its subsidiaries, distributes, generates and commercializes energy in the Brazilian electricity sector, and also operates in the segment of value-added services. With 13.0 percent of the market share, CPFL Energia heads the distribution segment through its eight distributors, which serve 569 municipalities in the States of Sao Paulo, Rio Grande do Sul, Parana and Minas Gerais.

"CPFL is the largest non-state owned (private) electric energy company in Brazil, and a leading innovator in this market. We are honored to have been chosen to help the company improve its services to its clients," said Eric Dresselhuys, Executive Vice President of Global Development at Silver Spring Networks. "Our proven, standards-based networking platform creates an open and interoperable base on which smart grid applications can be implemented, bringing electricity industry innovation to an increasing number of Brazilian consumers." "We are very pleased to have Silver Spring Networks partner with us to bring an open, standards-based smart grid to Brazil," said Mauro Carmello, Manager of Operations and Automation at CPFL Energia. "CPFL is adopting a Telecom infrastructure technology which will allow introduction of smart grids in Brazil and, for that, we are counting on Silver Spring to set a global benchmark in how we provide our clients with power and information. We believe that the smart grid system will significantly improve the Company's operating efficiency, particularly in terms of energy metering, automation and network operation processes."
