Singapore Power (SP) won the Smart Grid Project of the Year award at the Asian Power Awards 2014 today (September 12, 2014).
The electric and gas company was recognized for its programme with Silver Spring Networks, Inc to enable deregulated energy services in Singapore. According to its media statement, this was enabled by SP's deployment of a smart infrastructure networking platform, with nation-wide coverage, through Silver Spring's IPv6 technology.
In addition, SP leveraged Silver Spring's MicroAP Technology and a RF mesh canopy network to reach geographically dispersed customers, and maintain 99.5 percent metre 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," he added.
