GRID20/20 is the leading Distribution Transformer Monitor (DTM) intra-grid sensor provider within the global electric industry. GRID20/20 provides critical, timely, accurate information regarding the heart of the distribution grid’s operating conditions. Today, the global utility industry suffers from virtually no information or understanding of the dynamic intra-grid conditions occurring within the most expansive and most vulnerable segment of every grid on the planet.
GRID20/20 addresses a growing list of pain points for electric utilities. Examples include:
- DER/DG monitoring to report intra-grid voltages, asset loading and reverse energy associated with expanding renewable energy deployments.
- Power Theft and Technical losses identification to permit remediation of significant power losses occurring within distribution grids worldwide.
- Transformer loading, and proper asset sizing information.
- Revealing of unknown intra-grid voltage levels, fluctuations, and imbalances that lead to poor power service and possible damage to residential, commercial and industrial appliance.
- Outage Reductions, Accelerated Outage Notification and Accelerated Outage Restoration.
- Reduced Truck Rolls, and Lower Distribution Grid Management Operational Costs.
Grid20/20 anticipate significant growth on a global basis, and they expect to remain the world leader. Their cost effective, highly accurate intra-grid sensor solutions leverage the physical location of distribution transformers to capture unique and timely information that is not otherwise obtainable by grid operators.
GRID20/20 offers the OptaNODETM solution which consists of patented, exceptionally accurate, easy to install intra-grid sensors, and a robust, simple to navigate proprietary software/analytics platform. Their turnkey solution can be provided via a SaaS or a licensed experience. To date, over 53 Million intra-grid data sets have been reported to utility customers by GRID20/20. This represents over 600 Million unique intra-grid data elements already reported; the ongoing accumulation of data is now perpetual.
Market traction is emerging in those countries that have a desire to reduce power theft instances (e.g., $6Billion annually in the US alone), and those utilities that currently experience, or anticipate future impacts from DER/DG whereby reverse energy flows present serious grid safety and grid instability concerns. GRID20/20 OptaNODETM intra-grid sensors have been tested in 10 countries to date, with many more markets anticipated as this company presses forward.
The Founders of GRID20/20 are career entrepreneurs who recognized an enormous gap in the emerging smart grid market. The Founders realized that substation controls and AMI alone would never yield a comprehensive smart grid. So, they invested significant time, money, and energy to create a Best in Class, globally relevant solution that directly and immediately avails critical, accurate and timely information from within the heart of the distribution grid. GRID20/20 enables utilities to achieve a genuine comprehensive smart grid experience.
