Smarter Grid Solutions, a smart grid technology company, is joining the New York State Smart Grid Consortium (NYSSGC) as its first associate member in the "Emerging Innovators" category.

The NYSSGC, a public-private partnership devoted to statewide implementation of the smart grid, recently added an associate membership level that includes both an "Industry" and "Emerging Innovators" category. These new categories are in addition to the two existing full membership categories of "Industry and State Leaders" and "Researchers."

Headquartered in Glasgow, U.K., Smarter Grid Solutions focuses on distributed energy resource (DER) integration solutions. The company recently opened an office in Brooklyn to serve the North American smart grid market, and is already working with Con Edison on a NYSERDA-funded project to model and simulate microgrid applications for the New York metro area.

"Our membership with the consortium provides Smarter Grid Solutions with the perfect platform to explore opportunities to spur innovation in this sector while pushing broader smart grid-related technology deployment," says Dr. Bob Currie, chief technology officer and co-founder of Smarter Grid Solutions.
