Silver Springs Celebrates 10th Anniversary

24 May 2012

Silver Spring Networks is celebrating its 10 year anniversary. Founded in 2002, Silver Spring’s IPv6 standards-based networking platform has transformed the utility industry’s approach to modernizing the grid with more than 11 million homes and businesses networked on its Smart Energy Platform worldwide.

 
Silver Spring Networks chairman, president and chief executive officer Scott Lang says, “Silver Spring’s success can be boiled down to three essential elements—the vision, tenacity, and dedication of our employees; the relationships we have with our customers and partners; and the relentless pursuit of innovation that drives our market-defining networking platform. Ten years ago we shared a dream of increasingly connected, smarter, more efficient energy networks with our customers and the real economic and environmental benefits are being seen today.”

Silver Spring’s products and services enable utilities to improve their operating efficiency and establish a foundation for future applications. The technologies also help improve energy efficiency, integrate renewable energy sources, lower carbon emissions, and drive economic growth through grid modernization.
