Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) July 08, 2011
BC-based Bit Stew Systems, Inc., a leading provider of smart energy software to the utility industry, is pleased to announce that BC Hydro has selected Bit Stew’s Grid Director 2.0: Deployment & Management Module to support the deployment of 1.8 million smart meters throughout British Columbia.
The Deployment and Management module provides real-time interactive event mapping, user defined analytics and a fully integrated event driven calendar, providing a unique view into the world of smart metering networks, devices, components and all the related operational and enterprise technology. The real-time interactive map provides visualization of open, active, and closed smart meter work orders as well as outage and tamper events.
"The key from a technology perspective is that we can manage the smart meter deployment in real-time," explains Alex Clark, Bit Stew’s Founder & CTO. "We can immediately test a recently installed meter to confirm that the work-order is complete and then seamlessly connect and provide this information to other systems within the utility environment."
The Grid Director 2.0 Platform has four distinct modules: Deployment & Management, Demand Response 3.0, Home Energy Management, and Revenue Protection. The modules can be purchased independently or all together, but each leverages the core Grid Director 2.0 Platform.
“We are extremely pleased to be selected by BC Hydro to support their smart meter installation,” says Kevin Collins, Bit Stew’s Founder and CEO. “BC Hydro is clearly a leader in the smart energy space and we view this selection as a strong endorsement for our product offering.”
