The Durham Strategic Energy Alliance (DSEA) would like to announce that a consortium of DSEA members and other organizations has been awarded $2.8 million from the Smart Grid Fund (SGF) for the ‘Durham Smart Grid Demonstration Project’.
The ‘Durham Smart Grid Demonstration Project’ is collaboration between several DSEA members, including lead applicant Siemens Canada, Oshawa PUC Networks Inc, Whitby Hydro and, Veridian Connections, Intellimeter, Energent WirelE, University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT), Durham College, City of Pickering, Region of Durham and Smart Energy Instruments. The project’s objective is to build a control centre for three utilities to enable interaction, control, dispatching, monitoring, asset condition assessment, and load modeling/control/balancing of their systems. The project will create up to 29 new jobs in Durham Region.
“This is a great milestone and step forward for Durham Region, the DSEA and its members,” says Michael Kobzar, Chair of the DSEA. “This project facilitates collaboration, integration and synergy between a number of organizations, and allows us to accomplish together what no single organization can do alone. The DSEA is proud that the future of Smart Grid will be showcased right here in Durham Region, Ontario’s Energy Cluster”.
