Frost & Sullivan has selected GridPoint Inc., a leading clean tech company whose smart grid platform benefits electric utilities, consumers and the environment, as the recipient of the 2007 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Green Excellence in building management technologies in recognition of its success in pioneering a way to harness load management and distributed generation to achieve environmental sustainability. The Award will be presented at the 2007 Growth Excellence Awards banquet in Monterey, California.

GridPoint SmartGrid Platform™ aligns the interests of electric utilities, consumers and the environment through an intelligent network of distributed resources that controls load, stores energy and produces power. The platform enables utilities to efficiently balance supply and demand by discharging stored power during peak periods, reducing customers’ non-essential loads, optimizing existing base-load generation assets and relieving stress on transmission and distribution (T&D) lines.

"GridPoint has displayed the best characteristics of a successful Green Excellence initiative in the technology arena," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Konkana Khaund. "It has uniquely brought together the capabilities of load management, energy efficiency monitoring, energy storage and harnessing of renewable energy resources by devising an innovative interface platform between consumers and utilities, integrated through an intelligently controlled Web environment."

GridPoint SmartGrid Platform provides a modular, scaleable and upgradeable architecture that enables utilities to achieve the short and long-term goals of the Smart Grid. Utilities can immediately deploy proven technologies, (e.g., load control devices, batteries or renewable energy systems) while creating a practical path for integrating new technologies (e.g., plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and fuel cells). For consumers, GridPoint’s platform provides protection from power outages, increases energy efficiency and integrates renewable energy systems, paving the way for the commercial success of solar and wind energy sources.

The company’s timely and discerning response to emerging dynamics is noteworthy. Across North America, the industry has witnessed a substantial hike in energy prices leading to frequent electricity rate increases. Moreover, peak load requirement of utilities far exceeds the average load growth, thus putting a lot of capital inefficiency into the transmission and distribution (T&D) networks.

"These factors directly fuelled the innovation process behind GridPoint’s platform, which focuses on networking renewable energy into a utility-like asset," notes Khaund. "The technology is sustainable to utilities and at the same time capitalizes on the burgeoning interest in mainstream green awareness. It adequately addresses the desire for clean energy in response to the growing concerns on global warming."

In combination with the GridPoint Operations Center (interface with utilities) and GridPoint CentralSM (Web-based portal for consumers), GridPoint’s is truly the first system of its kind that provides vital information on total quantum and value of solar power generation in kilowatt-hours.

The GridPoint system is also an apt and timely answer to utilities that are interested in deploying a wireless networked environment. It provides information management, cataloging, structuring data, and gives the utility a variety of virtual control areas for optimizing its generation and consumption profiles at the same time.

"The system has been designed to absorb new capabilities without having to re-invent any part of the architecture," remarks Khaund. "It is a modular, scalable and reliably intelligent system responsive to conventional energy consumption items, renewable components, energy storage, and even plug-in electric hybrid automobiles."

Without doubt, GridPoint has displayed the very best characteristics of a successful Green Excellence initiative in the technology arena. For this reason, it is a worthy recipient of the 2007 North American Frost & Sullivan Building Management Technologies Green Excellence Award.
