ENBALA Power Networks, a Toronto-based company, has been awarded $1.8 Million towards a Smart Grid Project to advance the grid’s intelligence using large electricity users (loads) and their process storage. ENBALA is a world leader in engaging networks of loads to provide flexibility to the power system. The electricity users’ process storage will balance the grid’s real-time supply and demand for electricity across Ontario, helping to green the grid through the integration of renewable power sources.
As part of the provincial Government’s plan, the Ontario Smart Grid Fund is investing in the revitalization of the electric power grid and creating jobs by leveraging Ontario’s clean energy leaders to continue to grow and establish the Smart Grid industry.
“Ontario is at the forefront of creating and implementing Smart Grid technologies,” said Minister Glen Murray. “Through the Smart Grid Fund, Ontario continues to invest in the province, its local businesses and helps to create new jobs. Companies like ENBALA Power Networks are creating local jobs and engaging electricity users to advance the electric power system and increase its reliability and efficiency.” ENBALA is a world leader in engaging networks of loads to provide flexibility to the power system.
