Congratulations to Microsoft partner Enspiria Solutions, a strategic planning and systems integration company based in Denver. Last week it was announced that Enspiria is joining Black & Veatch to help them expand their smart grid capabilities.

For those not familiar with Black & Veatch, they are a leading global engineering, consulting and construction company specializing in infrastructure development in energy, water, telecommunications, management consulting, federal and environmental markets.

We have worked with Enspiria for the past several years to provide business intelligence and visualization solutions to  Utilities in North America. Plus, Enspiria was an early adopter of our Smart Energy Reference Architecture.

By joining Black & Veatch,  Enspiria will gain the reach and scale that will help Enspiria deliver additional client solutions in a variety of business environments and geographies around the world. Plus, Enspiria’s knowledge and expertise in Smart Grid consulting and program integration services enhances Black & Veatch’s service offering in the Smart Grid arena.

With over 50% of the respondents to our recent smart grid survey saying that they have not started their smart grid projects, the news of Enspiria joining Black & Veatch should be a shot in the arm in accelerating their journey toward creating a Smart Grid.  – Jon C. Arnold
