2013 Winner Profile

GE Digital Energy

Project Description:
The Smart Grid As A Service (SGaaS) supports GE Digital Energy's hosted utility products for customers that are not large power utilities. SGaaS differs from the traditional way Digital Energy provides Smart Grid services, which is by installing its products at customer's data centers for them to manage their grid on-site. SGaaS is a cloud-based, fee-for-service system aimed at meeting the operational technology needs of smaller customers that want to avoid the overhead expenses involved with developing their own smart-grid-management networks. Using a cloud-computing services model reduces deployment time by 50 percent and cuts costs by 10 percent.
