DENVER, April 28, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Green Energy Corp, a software technology company that enables traditional and emerging power providers to move to the Smart Grid, today announced that it has joined the MultiSpeak® Initiative for software application integration and interoperability.
Created by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) Cooperative Research Network (CRN), MultiSpeak is a software specification designed to help utilities exchange data among software applications and automate business processes. As an integral part of Green Energy Corp's GreenBus® product strategy, MultiSpeak helps vendors and utilities by enabling software products from different vendors to interoperate without requiring the development of custom interfaces.
"We are pleased to have Green Energy Corp join the MultiSpeak Initiative, which has been helping cooperative utilities implement Smart Grid technologies," said Bob Saint, MultiSpeak program manager at NRECA. "According to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, cooperatives lead the industry in the deployment of Smart Grid projects such as Advanced Meter Infrastructure. With the introduction of MultiSpeak Version 4 and GreenBus, utilities will be able to achieve a much higher level of interoperability between their applications."
GreenBus is a secure middleware platform that captures extremely high volume, real-time field device data and interconnects that data with operations and business systems. With this new access to grid intelligence through shared operational data and integrated applications, utilities are able to make the promise of the Smart Grid a reality.
"Our commitment to the MultiSpeak Initiative provides significant advantages to utilities and vendors," said Roxy Podlogar, Vice President of Product Strategy at Green Energy Corp. "With the addition of MultiSpeak, GreenBus gives utilities a 'plug and play' ability to interconnect systems. It also helps smart grid vendors reduce the time and cost to develop smart solutions."
GreenBus provides a clear pathway for utilities to incrementally adopt smart technology without disrupting the performance of today's dated, but still reliable grid. Green Energy Corp is a member of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association and has customers nationwide including Piedmont Electric Membership Corporation and many Smart Grid industry companies.
The MultiSpeak Specification is an industry-wide software standard that facilitates interoperability of diverse business and automation applications used in electric utilities. It has been developed and maintained by a collaboration of NRECA and the over 100 software vendors, consultants and utilities that are members of the MultiSpeak Initiative.
