Singapore Power Wins Smart Grid Project of the Year with Silver Spring Networks


Singapore Power (SP) won the ‘Smart Grid Project of the Year’ award at the Asian Power Awards 2014 today, for its programme with Silver Spring Networks, Inc. (NYSE: SSNI) to enable deregulated energy services in Singapore. This was enabled by SP’s successful deployment of a smart infrastructure networking platform, with nation-wide coverage, through Silver Spring’s IPv6 technology.

Since April 2014, SP has successfully begun delivering deregulated energy services to 15,000 commercial and industrial (C&I) customers, in support of the Singapore government’s policy to progressively liberalise the retail electricity market.

In addition, SP leveraged Silver Spring’s MicroAP Technology and a RF mesh canopy network to reach geographically dispersed customers, and maintain 99.5% meter read success rate. This helps SP ensure reliable communications from anywhere, at all times.

“The ‘Smart Grid Project of the Year’ award recognises Singapore Power for delivering reliable and efficient energy services to consumers. Through the deployment of new technology, SP has empowered our customers with more choice and the ability to better manage their energy usage, so as to achieve savings on electricity bills,” said Peter Leong, Managing Director, SP PowerGrid. “Silver Spring Networks is a key partner in the implementation of this country-wide platform. Through such partnerships, Singapore Power can continue to deliver greater value to Singapore consumers.”

“We congratulate Singapore Power on today’s win and are happy to partner with them to deploy world-class infrastructure that helps deliver lower prices and greater choice to their customers,” said Eric Dresselhuys, EVP of Global Development and Sales, Silver Spring Networks. “Utilities across Asia can look to Singapore Power as a best practice example for how to deploy smart grid services. Their sophisticated network canopy delivers scalable smart grid and smart city applications to help drive energy efficiency and new services for consumers for years to come.”
