Toronto, Ontario, November 2, 2011 – ENBALA Power Networksâ„¢, a Toronto-based company that pays large electricity users to connect to the Smart Grid, has teamed up with the University of Toronto and the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) on a research project that has been awarded an Engage Grant from the Government of Canada. The inherently random nature of this generation makes it more difficult for electricity system operators to manage fluctuations and maintain balance of the electric power system. The ENBALA Power Network helps electricity system operators balance the grid by connecting the demand-side assets of large electricity users to the Smart Grid and enabling them to react to system fluctuations.
The $25,000 grant, from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), fosters the development of new research partnerships and helps academics connect with Canadian companies to share technology and expertise and work collaboratively on research and development projects in a mutually beneficial arrangement.
