Description

With increasing energy demand and the impact of unpredictable weather events such as extreme cold and heat, improving grid stability and reliability is critical. Moreover, changing regulatory and operational environments are driving utilities to make the grid more reliable and ready to support edge applications such as DER’s. How are some forward-thinking utilities today accelerating their grid modernization efforts with unified technology solutions that support distributed intelligence at the grid edge? Join this session for real world perspectives on U.S. grid modernization initiatives, distribution automation communications strategy, and operational results obtained from leading utilities thus far. Learn about how utilities are deploying resilient communication networks to enable multiple smart grid applications over a common infrastructure, including advanced metering, distribution automation, and more.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand key environmental and industry trends driving grid mod projects today
  • Learn how distributed intelligence is giving utilities an edge in AMI, storm recovery and DER integration
  • Hear real success stories from the field
