I'm back from the IEEE PES T&D tradeshow and conference held in Dallas, Texas a few weeks ago.
We are in discussion with Heather Rosentrater, Avista Vice President of Energy Delivery looking at the future of electrical energy storage and delivery of that power.
Green Ovations | Technology harnesses the power of Lake Ontario to help boost electricity to the city
Jurisdictions around the world are turning towards renewable forms of energy – such as solar and wind – to lower emissions and protect the environment.
Christine Hertzog and Glen Chason
Utilities are aware that their growing reliance on wired and wireless sensor networks to support advanced grid operations has a downside – an increased attack surface.
Power system transients that are caused by utility switching operations or lightning strikes to electric facilities have significant potential to damage equipment or disrupt operation.
We have heard a lot about the Internet of Things (IoT) in our daily lives in recent years, from smart thermostats, smartphones, wearables and other connected devices to the myriad of apps that run them.
The digital age has brought with it a new type of consumer, one who increasingly expects, and even demands, to have it his or her way whether transacting, communicating, working or simply enjoying leisure time.
Armand Pineda, Western Europe & Africa Region General Manager, GE Grid Solutions
Energy and poverty – two elements with a direct relationship, as studies show that access to electricity has a positive effect on poverty.
How do you move, consciously and deliberately, from the past to the future?
Customer satisfaction is the name of the game. As consumers, we expect to flip a switch and have the lights turn on.
Organizations are continuously adapting to manage the ongoing stream of data, implementing strategic business plans to ensure that the company remains on top of current trends.
The Bigger Picture | Empowering Field Personnel with Satellite-Based Internet of Things Connectivity
Utilities around the world are embracing the Internet of Things (IoT) and all of the benefits that automating formerly manual processes has to offer.
Erik Amundson and David Heim
At the edge of the distribution grid lies an inestimable number of devices (such as Solar PV and other renewable generation sources, electric vehicles, water heaters, and HVAC systems) that, if properly harnessed, could provide significant value to Smart Grid applications.
Guest Editorial | Progress on linchpins of microgrid uptake: Focus is on controller technology, smart inverter policy and common information models
Enabled by increasing amounts of Distributed Energy Resources (DER), utilities and large facilities are turning to microgrids to support the resiliency of electric service in the aftermath of increasingly frequent, extreme weather events, as well as for grid support.
Guest Editorial | 2000 Kilometres of Vegetation Encroachment Study for Manitoba Hydro's 500 kV HVDC Transmission Line Network
In the ever changing world of data acquisition, over the past year WIRE Services has been developing engineering and right of way management solutions for electric service utilities by utilizing high resolution imagery to create 3 dimensional data point clouds on transmission right of ways.
