Toronto, Ontario, October 6, 2014 – Enbala Power Networks is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Fierce Innovation Award under the Distribution Systems Management category. The award was presented by FierceEnergy and FierceSmartGrid, and winners were chosen by an exclusive panel of utility judges.
The award recognizes Enbala for GOFlex™, its multi-service, grid optimization and control platform which allows for custom business cases based on the operational challenges and business needs of today’s utility. As the grid becomes increasingly decentralized, “The Operating System for Distributed Energy” enables utilities and energy services firms to solve complex grid modernization issues such as renewable integration, effective customer engagement, and the coordination and control of distributed energy resources.
“Winning this award for our GOFlex software platform is a thrill for us,” said Arthur (Bud) Vos, President and CEO of Enbala. “We believe that this type of distributed system management technology is the future for grid operations and I’d like to thank the panel of utility experts for recognizing Enbala.”
Winners were selected by an exclusive panel of executives from major North American utilities including CenterPoint Energy, Commonwealth Edison, Duke Energy, Florida Power & Light, National Grid, Pacific Gas & Electric Company, Portland General Electric, and San Diego Gas & Electric. The panel stated that Enbala was selected for its innovative and industry-leading GOFlex platform; specifically, the value that the technology can bring to utility demand response (DR) initiatives.
