A friend very recently asked me if there was just one place on the planet I would love to go back to. Without hesitation, I said Greenland. He thought I was joking but when I started to explain my answer, he began to understand.
The Grid Transformation Forum: Envisioning the 21st Century Grid
How New ‘Smarter’ Technologies in the Smart Grid got the Lights Back on Faster Following Superstorm Sandy
John D. McDonald, director, technical strategy and policy development at GE - Digital Energy
We are speaking with John D. McDonald, director, technical strategy and policy development at GE - Digital Energy.
Green Ovations: Innovations in Green Technologies
Reducing Peak Power Demand with Flywheel Technology
Patrick McMullen, VYCON
Over the last century, epic advances have been made in our transportation technologies. From cars and buses to trains and planes, we have the freedom to travel at comfortable fares; however, not only are we still using primitive and environmentally harmful fuels and chemistries to propel our mass transit services, we are taxing the electric grid to do so.
PART I – WHAT WE DISCOVERED: Bulk System Reliability Assessment and the Smart Grid
Insights and Recommendations from Exploratory Workshops on Evaluating Potential Reliability Impacts of Smart Grid Deployments
Jason Taylor, Senior Project Engineer/Scientist, EPRI
A system can only ever be as ‘smart’ as its design. Achieving a ‘smart grid,’ therefore, depends on system designers having access to tools capable of assessing system reliability under an evolving portfolio of potential smart grid applications.
Peter Manos, Principal Strategy Consultant McDonnell Group
Utilities are engaged in a complex balancing act in which next-generation design, modeling and visualization tools are playing an increasingly important role.
Michael Anderson, Echelon and Bo Danielsen, SEAS-NVE
Denmark takes renewable energy seriously. According to the Danish Energy Agency, renewable energy sources accounted for 40.7 percent of domestic energy produced in the country in 2011.
Acting on the Deluge of Newly Created Automation Data: Using Big Data Technology and Analytics to Solve Real Problems
CJ Parisi, Dr. Siri Varadan, P.E., and Mark Wald, Utility Integration Solutions, Inc. (UISOL)
The amount of data available for use by distribution system operators has grown by orders of magnitude due to the rapid growth in the number of intelligent electronic devices (IEDs), sensors, and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) devices.
E. Sotter Field Application Engineer, Systems With Intelligence Inc., G.P. Porciello, President, Systems With Intelligence Inc. and J. McClean, Vice President – Operations, Powerstream Inc.
Twenty-first century electric power utilities are faced with complex operational issues and challenges with respect to physical security of critical assets, particularly substations.
The Bigger Picture : A Lean, Green Fighting Machine?
Part 1: The Regulatory Risk Posed by the Army’s Renewables Initiative
Maura Goldstein, Baker Botts L.L.P
On March 15, 2012, the United States Army (“Army”) released a draft request for proposal for ‘up to $7 billion in renewable energy sources,’ a massive procurement to be overseen by the Energy Initiatives Office Task Force (“EITF”).
William T. (Tim) Shaw, PhD, CISSP / CIEH / CPT
Watching the NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) standards evolve over the past few years, and seeing all of the ongoing discussions in the various on-line blogs about what may or may not meet with NERC compliance, leaves me with the belief that there are still many issues that have not been properly or adequately addressed.
Mark Madden, Regional Vice President for Utility Markets with Alcatel-Lucent’s America’s Region
It’s kind of obvious that the effects of Hurricane Sandy figure prominently among the predictions. The scale of Sandy was unprecedented, and it seems the resulting debate has been similarly proportioned.
Albert Thumann, PE, CEM
In 2012, the association conducted a survey of our members for additional insights into demand for energy efficiency, professional education and training programs, and trends in the industry.
