When it comes to energy and sustainability management, the pressure on organizations has reached a tipping point.
Tim Godfrey and Christine Hertzog
The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) recognizes that today's power grids and advanced grid initiatives need reliable, resilient, flexible, and secure telecom networks.
When Electric Energy T&D approached us and said they were passing the baton to me, a software developer, for Part 3 of The Internet of Things Starts with the Grid of Things, I abruptly said, "don't you mean you are passing the toast"?
Distribution and Transmissions systems are evolving to accommodate increasing amounts of renewable distributed generation (DG) while also dealing with more intense storms, cyber security threats, evolving markets and aging infrastructure.
There are a great many people in the market that suggest that the electric transmission and distribution network has outlived its usefulness and that as a country we should no longer be investing in the grid.
By many estimates, there is expected to be 35 billion IoT devices by 2020. So here's a good question; how much are these deployments going to cost?
Electric utilities recognize the need for new distribution network technologies to accommodate sustainable growth and customers' growing interest in grid-connected, customer-owned technologies such as solar rooftops and home/building energy management systems, and smart devices such as appliances.
Throughout the smart grid era, utilities have evolved their approach to communications, achieving in AMI networks some of the first scalable and business case driven IoT deployments. Is the industry ready to lead in the increasingly interconnected IoT era?
Dr. Tim Shaw
In my line of work I get the occasional opportunity to come in and examine the results of plant cyber security implementation programs within various organizations.
Justin Lowe and Sean Duffy
With cyber threats to the electric utility landscape increasing, what is the role of the utility C-suite in ensuring preparedness and what steps can be taken to enhance effectiveness?
In 2016, the U.S. passed 1 million solar installations, and that number is estimated to pass 2 million by the end of this year.
Donald Racey and Ellen Smith
Recent examples of lower probability, high-consequence events affecting the electric utility industry are reshaping the way utility executives and board members must look at risk and the associated costs of mitigating risk.
