SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Jan 24, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — DistribuTECH–ClipperCreek announced today the ETL listing of its Silver Spring Networks’ Direct-to-Grid(TM) communications technology.

This first of its kind product allows utilities to measure EV charging consumption and ensure grid reliability by managing the load during peak demand times.

“ClipperCreek has long advocated the synergy between the Smart Grid and EV Charging,” said Dave Packard, ClipperCreek President. “Taking advantage of existing Smart Grid communications infrastructure allows utilities to fully maximize this increase in business while minimizing the impact on the grid.”

This introduction adds to ClipperCreek’s industry leading array of products for the EV industry. The advanced capability allows utilities world wide to deploy two-way load-control connectivity to electric vehicle charging stations, leveraging the robust networking infrastructure they’ve already invested in.

Silver Spring’s open, unified Smart Energy Platform includes an end-to-end Demand Response solution, including UtilityIQ Demand Response Manager in the back office, network infrastructure, and in-home devices with Silver Spring networking built in. The UtilityIQ Demand Response Manager software supports electric vehicle charge management to reduce the risk of new peak loads and encourages customer participation in Demand Response programs.
