Join the Smart Grid Family with Green Energy Corp GreenBus Alliance Program

By Jaclyn Allard January 20, 2011

As I wrote last week, Green Energy Corp, provider of software engineering services and smart grid management systems, is no small player in the smart grid industry, and its release of Total Grid open source community is proof of its determination in the market, envisioning smart grid beyond the basic plumbing. Hosting smart grid applications, protocols, and Reef/GreenBus functionality, Total Grid, fosters innovation and collaboration, allowing developers to contribute and use smart grid related software.

GreenBus platform allows for rapid development of utility applications and is the only open source solution that supports interoperability of legacy and new applications. GreenBus will come with hundreds of customized and standard drivers such as DNP3, Modbus and IEC 61850. Green Energy Corp revealed today, Jan. 20, the launch of its GreenBus Alliance Program for developers and integrators. As Roxy Podlogar, vice president of Product Strategy at Green Energy Corp, said in a statement, “The Alliance Program enables faster development of new technologies and applications for the smart grid by a growing ecosystem of leading smart grid players. Utilities will benefit greatly from this program by having a wider selection of new intelligent applications, quicker releases and updates of software, and less constraints from proprietary legacy applications.”

Below is the offer that Alliance Program members can expect:

  • GreenBus Applications Programming Interface (includes MultiSpeak)
  • Software Development Kit
  • Technical Support and Marketing Assistance

i2IS, is a cybersecurity firm, ready to partake in the Alliance Program and see what it can offer. In a statement, Seth Kulakow, co-founder of i2IS, and former State of Colorado chief Information security officers, raved, “We are very proud to be part of the Alliance Program. The open architecture of GreenBus allows us to easily integrate the i2IS cybersecurity application, and offers a fully secure end-to-end Smart Grid solution to utilities. This will also add deeper and more dynamic levels of security to afford protection for other applications connected to the GreenBus.”

In other company news, towards the close of 2010, IoTevolutionworld reported that Centennial Campus, a campus owned, technology research park, operated by NC State University, was quickly establishing itself as a hub for green grid research. Green Energy Corp was announced as one of the latest corporate partners to locate an office on the NC State University's Centennial Campus.
