    Blue Pillar has achieved significant market growth by connecting more behind-the-meter assets, creating compelling ecosystem partnerships, and pioneering Energy Network-as-a-Service

    Frederick, Maryland (PRWEB) September 20, 2017

    Based on its recent analysis of the behind-the-meter networks industry, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Blue Pillar with the “2017 North American Behind-the-meter Internet-of-Energy Growth Excellence Leadership Award” for connecting behind-the-meter assets that can help overcome reliability and resiliency challenges, while also being first in market to offer Energy Network-as-a-Service (ENaaS). Blue Pillar is an Energy Internet of Things (IoT) platform company with the goal to seamlessly connect distributed energy resources (DERs) — new or old and all makes and models — to help commercial facilities, utilities, and energy service providers avoid power outages, balance the grid, alleviate grid stress, and drive higher levels of efficiency and data interoperability.

    The aging grid infrastructure in the United States is increasingly strained, with average grid outages increasing an estimated six-fold within the last decade. Additionally, growing distributed energy resources make the grid more vulnerable and difficult for utilities to manage the power and information flow. Given the current grid issues, utilities and their commercial and industrial (C&I) customers are devising strategies to address these problems that require the use of open, behind-the-meter Energy IoT networks to enable solutions such as:· Virtual power plants (VPPs): a virtual facility that amalgamates various potential resources, including plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), energy storage solutions, and customer-owned DERs;
    · Automated demand response (ADR): used by utilities to gain access to distributed generation behind-the-meter in times of peak demand to help stabilize the grid and avoid power outages; and
    · Distributed energy resources management systems (DERMS): used to integrate distributed generation sources that are increasingly found behind-the-meter at C&I facilities and used to enhance the controllability of distributed assets through near real-time monitoring.

    “Blue Pillar’s Aurora® Energy Network of Things® platform simplifies the connectivity of DERS into an open and centralized platform to deliver real-time energy data to energy providers, C&I facilities, DR aggregators and third-party software providers,” said Farah Saeed, Global Program Leader, Grids. “What makes Aurora unique is that it can connect any switch, meter, generation source, or other asset that happens behind the meter, regardless of age, make, model, or type, through a cyber-secure and scalable open IoT architecture that is completely vendor agnostic. This approach advances data analytics and control at the grid edge required to help utilities and other end users with their capacity planning and peak demand management.”

    “We are honored to receive this recognition from Frost & Sullivan. Blue Pillar has achieved tremendous growth in the past five years by focusing on being an open Energy IoT platform that connects behind-the-meter assets to automate the way critical energy data is gathered. Data that was once manually collected from DERs on clipboards or by meter readers can now be accessible through a digital platform to any third-party energy software,” said Tom Willie, CEO of Blue Pillar. “Our growth has been a result of the use of leading-edge IoT architecture and technology partnerships that make our approach 75% faster and 30% more affordable for our customers when compared to the costs of trying to build these behind-the-meter networks on their own.”

    Blue Pillar is focused on connecting behind-the-meter assets through an open IoT platform to make DER data (and control) accessible to third-party energy management software. Blue Pillar has differentiated itself not only in innovating the way it prescribes behind-the-meter networks, but in its success in offering an ENaaS — a fully turnkey and automated approach to delivering the creation of Energy IoT networks of DERs without ever requiring the customer to set foot behind the meter. Blue Pillar’s ENaaS offering eliminates operational deployment and maintenance concerns and delivers all hardware, installation, and configuration required to keep the network alive. Behind-the-meter data and control is accessible through an open application program interface (API) that dramatically reduces development time and costs.

    “Blue Pillar has successfully demonstrated that it can connect all types of DERs through its industry-recognized Aurora® Energy Network of Things® platform and is scaling globally to connect more DERs than any of its competitors,” said Saeed. “It is able to do so through strong technology partnerships, such as with Dell and Intel for grid-edge gateway devices, Microsoft for OS, and Azure for cloud service. These brand names allow Blue Pillar to successfully bridge the gap between the facility and IT departments. For these reasons, Blue Pillar has earned Frost & Sullivan’s 2017 North American Behind-the-meter Internet-of-Energy Growth Excellence Leadership Award.”

    Each year, Frost & Sullivan bestows this award upon the company that demonstrates excellence in growth and customer value. It recognizes the superiority of the product/service, as well as the overall customer, purchase, ownership, and service experience offered, which has resulted in the recipient company seeing above-market growth and greater share of wallet. The award lauds the growth, diversification, and sustainability strategies of the company.

    Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.

    About Blue Pillar
    Blue Pillar connects the Energy Things that power our world. The only IoT solution to unite all Energy Things onto a single platform, Blue Pillar unleashes the power of real-time data to strengthen critical infrastructure and accelerate business. Blue Pillar’s Aurora is automated through a template-driven process where security is built-in from sensor to cloud.

    RN to BSN, CBE powered by SIMPath™ program incorporates digital simulation to enhance learning experience from the comfort of the student’s home.

    AURORA, Colo (PRWEB) September 20, 2017

    American Sentinel University, an accredited healthcare-focused online university, announces a new online option for earning a BSN: RN to BSN, CBE powered by SIMPath™. SIMPath™ incorporates a robust digital simulation into the curriculum and allows nursing students to learn how they want and when they want.

    The RN to BSN, CBE powered by SIMPath™ is CCNE-accredited and was designed for nursing students to learn at their own pace and leverage their skills and knowledge to complete as many competencies as they wish in 16-week terms. This exciting new learning format makes it possible for nurses to finish their BSN in less than a year for as little as $9,000.

    Digital Simulation Enhances Learning Experience
    “Each nursing student’s educational journey is all their own. The way you learn, when you study, the experience you bring, and the challenges you want to overcome are truly unique to you. SIMPath™ offers our students the flexibility to earn their BSN their way,” says Karen Whitham, Ed.D., MSN, RN, CNE, Associate Dean, Nursing and Healthcare Programs at American Sentinel University. Whitham is a certified nurse educator and a member of Sigma Theta Tau, and the National League for Nursing.

    A Bachelor of Science Nursing is quickly becoming the minimum education level for many healthcare systems. American Sentinel’s RN to BSN curriculum focuses on the most relevant areas of nursing today: management, community health, strategic planning and more. These skills can be immediately applied to the students’ nursing careers.

    Students accepted to the RN to BSN, CBE powered by SIMPathTM may be awarded 60 credit hours of the total 120 credit hours for their RN license and ADN or nursing diploma. Additionally, students can transfer in up to 30 credits of general education leaving ten nursing credits to earn the degree.

    The addition of SIMPath™ offers students an interactive and immersive simulation. Assignments focus on observations and experiences from the digital simulation, allowing them to explore different communities from the comfort of their own home.

    “Nurses are an important part of the care team, and advanced nursing education is the key to stability and mobility in the healthcare industry,” says Dr. Whitham. “There is a shortage of nurses and access to nursing education in many rural areas throughout our country. Our RN to BSN, CBE powered by SIMPath™ opens BSN degree opportunities to non-traditional students, including working parents and those with time constraints.”

    Affordable, Flexible and Attainable
    The RN to BSN, CBE powered by SIMPath™ is 100% online and designed for working healthcare professionals, providing them with the convenience to complete competencies around their busy schedule.

    Gold producer Klondex Mines Ltd (TSE:KDX, NYSE:KLDX) is set for a busy time ahead as it drives its plan to get its Hollister and True North projects into production. The group's guidance for full year 2017 output for around 200,000 ounces is a far cry from its 2016 figure of around 150,000 ounces, the firm noted in a recent interview. This underlines its aggressive growth startegy. Proximity of Nevada assets a big boon.. Paul Huet, Klondex, chief executive, has explained that the Hollister acquisition in 2016 puts its three assets in Nevada in close proximity and offered fantastic synergies. These three mines will all feed its mill facility at Midas. Under a previous operator,  Hollister ore had to be shipped 277 miles away to be milled, but now can be transported just 19 miles to the Midas mine, meaning a huge reduction in costs. Meanwhile, he explained how the True North mine and mill in Manitoba was a great opportunity to scale up the group's production, buying it as it did from bankruptcy for just $32mln. It has already had $500mln spent on it. Klondex reckons it can produce 60-80,000 ounces a year, at its 2500 tpd (tpd) mill. The area also has upside exploration potential to extend the life of mine there.  WATCH - An 'aggressive' 2017 for Klondex Mines as they take two of their projects into production What assets does Klondex have? It owns 100% of the Fire Creek mine and the Midas mine and ore milling facility, both of which are in Nevada, USA. It also owns all of the True North gold mine and mill in Manitoba, Canada. It has also acquired 100% of the Hollister mine and the Aurora mine and ore milling facility - both in Nevada. Well positioned to meet guidance after second quarter... When it posted second quarter results last month, the group said it was "well positioned" to meet its annual companywide production guidance of between 210,000 and 225,000 gold equivalent ounces. Klondex sold 69,511 GEOs, comprised of 65,293 ounces of gold and 307,899 ounces of silver. Average realized selling prices for gold and silver respectively were US$1,249 and $17.10 per ounce. Revenue hit a quarterly record of US$86.79mln, up 74% from US$49.99mln a year earlier. That fed through to net income of US$4.5mln, or 4 cents a share, versus a net loss the year before of US$4.5mln, or a loss of 3 cents a share. True Gold drill assays point to expanding the resource... Recent assays came from 104 underground holes totalling 19,576 metres, targeting the updip extension of the 710 zone from the 6,350 level and the downdip extension of the 710 and 710 footwall lens at the 32 level. The firm already in May this year had upgraded the resource at True North. The total proved plus probable (2P) mineral reserve at the gold mine was put at 147,900 ounces of gold -  a 25% increase on the previous estimate Meanwhile, the probable tailings mineral reserve was put at 43,200 gold ounces at a grade of 0.75 g/t, contained within 1.95mln tons - an increase of about 33% from the previous estimate. Maiden Hollister resource.. That was also recently put at an initial proven and probable (P&P) reserve at 199,500 tonnes at a grade of 19.9 g/t gold equivalent for a total of 116,100 gold equivalent ounces. What the broker says... H C Wainright recently repeated a 'buy' on the shares . Its valuation for Klondex (C$6.25 a share) was based on an equally weighted composite of 14 times' the broker's estimates for 2017 CFPS (cash flow per share) and a DCF (discounted cash flow) of operations at Fire Creek, Midas, and True North. "We utilize discount rates of 8% for the firm’s Nevada assets and 10% at True North, which we expect to revisit once a full year of production is achieved at the Canadian project. "Overall, we expect the Nevada operations to continue to outperform, which should help to maintain profitability in 2H17," said analyst Heiko F. Ihle. The broker has recently been on a site visit to the Nevada operations, where it noted that the firm had stressed their assets in the state were essentially run as a single mine. "This allows the firm meaningful flexibility in pushing a mine while there are temporary slowdowns at another asset. Given that Klondex only has a single mill, it is somewhat irrelevant which mine provides the ore. In fact, Paul Huet, CEO, stated that the company is thinking of expanding capacity at the mill to future-proof the mining complex for the years to come," it added.
