Dominion and Lockheed Martin has announced the availability of the EDGESM Grid Side Efficiency solution for utilities. EDGE is the first of several smart grid applications to be delivered through a joint marketing and development alliance between the two companies.

EDGE is a modular and adaptive conservation voltage management solution enabling utilities to deploy incremental grid-side energy management that requires no behavioral changes or purchases by end customers. The EDGE product suite provides significant and sustainable energy savings through integrated planning, execution and validation of grid side energy efficiency management.

"EDGE marries two strong companies, Dominion and Lockheed Martin, to make it easy to bring and validate savings to utilities and their customers," said Mary C. Doswell, Dominion senior vice president-Alternative Energy Solutions.

"Lockheed Martin brings its unique strengths as a system-of-systems integrator and developer of mission-critical command and control systems to make EDGE work seamlessly with a utility's existing distribution management software."

"Dominion, with its 100 years of electric distribution experience, has a keen knowledge of distribution network operations and has proven substantial energy savings in its conservation voltage management deployment," said Roger Flanagan, Director, Lockheed Martin's Energy Solutions.

"Together, we will provide a program-based solution that helps our utility customers better manage their grid and meet their energy efficiency targets."

Under the terms of the agreement, Dominion and Lockheed Martin will provide EDGE integration, software support and maintenance services to sales channel partners, as well as end use utility customers. In addition to Lockheed Martin, EDGE sales channels include Bridge Energy Group, Elster, Landis + Gyr, and Silver Spring Networks.

"Each of our channel partners offers a unique set of products and services that are enhanced by our EDGE products," said Doswell. "We believe that these partnerships allow the product to be delivered to the utility customer seamlessly, either by integrating into their existing AMI and Distribution Smart Grid systems or as part of a full end-to-end solution for those deploying new Smart Grid applications."

Lockheed Martin and Dominion are demonstrating EDGE in booth #217 at the DistribuTECH industry conference that runs until Jan. 26 in San Antonio, Texas.
