Smart Grid waves of investment

Two waves of investment that shaped the grid to make it smarter, more modern and intelligent

The future of smart distributed energy resources integration

Smart grids will mitigate the variable nature of solar and wind DERs, as well as support overall grid stability and reliability.

Small but smart

With relatively modest investments, public power utilities can begin making strides toward a scalable smart grid implementation.

Smart grids: The great IT/OT convergence

Investments in distribution tech are leveraging OT/IT integration, communications, and advanced applications to improve grid reliability and efficiency

Smart transmission technologies

While most people identify the term Smart Grids with the new smart meters they may have in their homes, the real implications are far more vast and complex

Smart grids: turning complex data into clear and actionable intelligence

Utility analytics provide meaningful information to utility engineers that help them to avoid unplanned outages, especially cata­strophic failures

The two other areas where utilities are making smart grid investments

Market analysts forecast utility analytics as the fastest growing smart grid technology area and many utilities have DER pilot programs in place

Leveraging technology to drive energy efficiency and conservation

Our current resource constraints and the onslaught of coal plant closures are driving the need to reduce energy consumption and demand.
