New Brunswickers want to actively participate in their energy system, with greater control over their energy costs and consumption. NB Power, the province's utility, wants to empower their consumers, bolster system-wide reliability, and position itself as a utility of the future. Its powerful innovation is made possible by Siemens Smart Grid solution, as well as a special partnership between the people of Siemens and NB Power.
Siemens is committed to improve the lives of New Brunswickers with three special ingenuity-driven investments. First, the Global Centre of Competence in Fredericton leverages the delivery of Siemens end-to-end smart grid solution for NB Power. Second, a related Research and Development office manages the design and rollout of smart grid software. And finally, support for smart grid research projects is undertaken at universities in New Brunswick, including the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of New Brunswick (UNB), which is located in Fredericton.
Siemens ingenuity is the secret sauce that's going to allow our utility to be successful in the future.Brad Wasson, Director, NB Power
