National Grid Selects Itron And Cisco’s Smart Grid Solution For Pilot Program

“We have been very pleased with the results of the early field trial. Our goal from the beginning has been to test and validate the smart grid solution before we fully deploy it to our customers. We look forward to working with Itron and Cisco on this next phase of implementing our Smart Grid Pilot Program,” said Cheri Warren, vice president, Asset Management for National Grid.

“National Grid has taken a very thoughtful and innovative approach to deploying smart grid technologies, focusing on a comprehensive and scalable solution that will enable rapid scale-up in the future,” said Russ Vanos, vice president of global smart grid and business development at Itron. “The results of this pilot will surely influence the industry as we look to evolve smart grid communications from proprietary systems to true multi-application networks built on open standards.”

“National Grid’s new, highly secure multi-application communications network will help transform its operations as well support programs that engage and empower customers to make informed choices about their energy use. Cisco is proud to be a part of such an innovative and exciting smart grid implementation,” said Lionel Chocron, vice president and general manager of Cisco’s Connected Energy Networks business unit.
