And The Winner Is… GE’s Grid IQ™ Customer Experience Center

GE (NYSE: GE) recently won three prestigious audiovisual (AV) awards for its advanced technology at the company’s Grid IQ™ Global Innovation Center in Markham, Ontario. At the centerpiece of the center is a 60-foot-wide, seven-foot-high, 180-degree curved laser phosphor display videowall, designed by Prysm Inc., which allows customers to take an interactive, immersive look at GE’s full suite of grid modernization offerings. This Customer Experience Center is another example of how GE is helping its customers do their part to modernize the grid.

GE was given the 2013 Integration Award for Best Corporate Solution by Commercial Integrator Magazine and TechDecisions Media and also received the inaugural People’s Choice Award in the Best Corporate Solution category, which is sponsored by InfoComm International and NewBay Media. Finalists for the People’s Choice Award were chosen by a panel of industry experts that included journalists, educators and technical directors. The winners were determined by the votes of attendees at InfoComm 2013.

In addition, recognized as the industry’s best professional AV installation in the Corporate category and chosen from entries received in nine categories, GE also was awarded one of the PRO AV Spotlight Awards, which honor installations that demonstrate excellence in technical design, innovation and success in advancing their customers’ mission.

“These awards recognize how our state-of-the-art Global Innovation Center in Ontario is allowing customers to experience, in ways that were not possible before, how GE’s innovative technologies can solve their complex grid modernization challenges,” said Claudio Cargnelli, chief marketing officer for GE’s Digital Energy business. “Our Customer Experience Center leverages the latest in AV and interactive digital tools to immerse customers in a virtual power system, helping them identify grid modernization challenges, the impact of those challenges and potential solutions, from the power plant to the power consumer.”

The Grid IQ Global Innovation Center is one of many ways GE is working to modernize the grid. For example, earlier this month, GE announced that it has been selected by ComEd, a unit of Chicago-based Exelon Corporation and the electric utility serving Northern Illinois, to deliver approximately 4 million smart meters from 2013 to 2021 in a deal worth more than $200 million.
