Bridge Energy Group to integrate National Grid smart grid system

National Grid selected Bridge Energy Group as project leader and primary system integrator for the company’s smart grid project in Worcester, Massachusetts, which covers about 15,000 customers.

National Grid’s smart grid pilot, developed in partnership with customers, the city of Worcester and other key parties, is designed to provide participating customers a new level of choice and control over their energy use through advanced technology.

The goals of this project include empowering customers to save energy, increasing electric service reliability and improving response to power outages.

This local project is expected to serve as a model for how to deploy all essential technologies, such as head-end systems and MDMs, in a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. It will also be the first to use 4G WiMAX technology for network communications.

Bridge has been selected by National Grid for the definition, management and delivery on several fronts including program governance and management, business readiness, solution architecture and design, testing and transition to operations.

In addition to managing over a dozen different vendors and technologies, Bridge’s team of integration experts is also responsible for defining the end-to-end architecture in conjunction with the National Grid IS teams and technical vendor teams.
