Silicon Energy (Alameda, CA) and Sixth Dimension (Fort Collins, CO) announced an alliance to develop and market fully integrated solutions for large-scale, high-volume energy projects. The partnership will provide customers with advanced, end-to-end distributed generation management capabilities using proven technology and services from both companies.

Under the new agreement, Sixth Dimension will integrate the 6D iNET with the Silicon Energy EEM Suite - Distributed Energy Manager (DEM). This will allow 6D iNET to push telemetry data to and pull dispatch commands from Silicon Energy's DEM application. Integrating Silicon Energy's enterprise level software with the hardware and network communication services of Sixth Dimension will provide customers with a more robust, secure and reliable communication infrastructure for managing distributed resources.

”We see this partnership as key to providing mission critical capabilities for our customers,' said Bob Jurkowski, COO Silicon Energy. “As we continue to look for ways to address reliable and cost effective energy supply, we believe that this joint offering will further the market's ability to integrate distributed resources into a comprehensive energy strategy.'

”By partnering with Silicon Energy, we are able to enhance customers' short-term return on investment, reduce cost and mitigate risk,' said Sunil Cherian, president and CEO, Sixth Dimension. “Our integrated solution allows energy providers to maximize their generation resources and operate more efficiently in a changing energy market.'
