ac/dc power delivery

With the continued growth of solar PV, battery energy storage, and EV charging infrastructure, the larger the role DC plays in power delivery. As this role increases, utilities are looking to advanced power electronics as part of the strategic roadmap towards cutting emissions on the path of achieving net zero goals.

As a result, GridBridge developed “first of its kind” technology to deliver AC and DC service to the distribution grid, bringing power to homes and public EV charging simultaneously.  This opens the door to a new paradigm of flexible, vendor agnostic DC Fast Charging options that efficiently integrate battery energy storage to reduce grid capacity constraints – shortening project approval times and lowering peak demand costs.

Resources (DER)

As the installed base of DERs continues to grow, the number of disruptive effects on the performance and stability of the electric grid will increase dramatically.


GridBridge is working with utility distribution professionals to implement next generation technology solutions that provide both information and control at the grid’s edge.  The result is more visibility and control of the DERs while extending the useful life of existing electric grid infrastructure.


Grid modernization and upgrades provide opportunities for more precise management and dynamic optimization of power levels in the last mile of the Grid. For example, new tools enable utilities’ Conservation Voltage Reduction (CVR) and Volt-VAR Optimization (VVO) programs to deliver even better results.


GridBridge is working with electric utilities to better utilize their existing assets and infrastructure.  The results can include flattening the feeder voltage profile downstream of the substation, balancing phases, enhancing existing VVO programs, and increasing throughput on feeders.


In this new era of increasing electricity demand, utilities have been engaged to better understand distribution networks’ performance. AMI and sensors along the grid have served as an enabler for this information.  As EV chargers, solar inverters, and smart home devices are added downstream of the service transformer, more actionable information is required to ensure reliable, efficient, and cost-effective power delivery.

GridBridge is therefore working with utilities to collect data at key points on the secondary distribution feeder. Leveraging advancements in storage and grid edge control while integrating data from sources such as AMI meters and line sensors to reduce losses, manage transformer load and optimize voltage at the Grid Edge improves the distribution grid’s flexibility and overall performance.”


The electric grid is facing unprecedented demands that surpass its original design.  Electricity now needs to flow more intelligently than only from large generation facilities to an end customer.  However, the answer is not to rip everything out and start fresh.  Utilities and customers need a feature rich solution closer to the point of end use. 


GridBridge has an impressive track record of delivering extremely complex technical solutions to customers.  While power electronics-based hardware is a core enabler for modifying power, solutions also often include software and data services.
