“Smart grid and smart metering introduce access control, network and application security concerns at and beyond the meter,” explained Sarav Periasamy, PERI Software, who is scheduled to speak at the conference

Sacramento, CA  Utilities need to “go beyond simple ’smart meter’ initiatives to the process of using less energy” according to a study released by the nonprofit American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). PERI Software Solutions Inc., a global business solutions company agrees. PERI is participating in the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners Conference in Sacramento July 18 – 21, 2010, at the Sacramento Convention Center.

PERI Software President & CEO Sarav Periasamy talks to Jarrod Ulery, Consumers Energy at a smart grid conference recently. Periasamy is speaking this weekend at the national conference in Sacramento.
“Research shows that 60 percent of the electricity generated in this country is lost to inefficiencies, and the fact that smart grid technology is green and substantially enhances grid efficiency through improved outage detection and response helps utility customers feel good about saving energy,” said Sarav Periasamy, president and CEO, PERI Software. Periasamy is scheduled to speak at 11:15 AM, Sunday, July 18th, on “Cost Effective Solutions for Smart Grid.”
"Smart Grid technology transforms the way utilities can deliver power to customers, but we need to educate and explain in layman’s terms just how it works,” he said.
PERI Software is the only certified minority business enterprise in the U.S. with an end-to-end smart grid solution. The company, based in Newark, NJ, can provide both its own smart grid advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and smart meter technology and software platform  or PERI can act as systems integrators on any smart grid platform, regardless of technology.
