Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC) has selected Bridge Energy as the smart grid integration partner for its smart grid initiatives.

OUC will start integrating Meter Data Management (MDM), Customer Information System (CIS) and Outage Management System (OMS) applications as part of a broader smart grid initiative.

Bridge will leverage its eFAME Methodology to integrate OUC’s newly acquired eMeter MDM application with OUC’s existing CIS and OMS applications across distributed locations.

Bridge will use its eFAME methodologies to perform strategic assessment, develop smart grid strategy, evaluate vendor products and implement application integration.

Bridge’s technology agnostic and vendor neutral approach will enable OUC to work with various application vendors under a uniform set of standards, the company said.
