How Can You Unlock the Value of Grid-Connected Storage?

How Can You Unlock the Value of Grid-Connected Storage?

I recently had the opportunity to both attend and present at an EUCI event focused on Grid-Connected Storage Interconnection and Operations – Technical and Policy Guidelines. From the discussion at the event, it is evident those working with storage solutions can support a wide variety of diverse applications. The same storage solution can provide load shifting (charging during off-peak hours...

How to Effectively Manage Distributed Energy Resources

How to Effectively Manage Distributed Energy Resources

The availability and delivery of electricity is becoming more complex as growing amounts of distributed energy resources (DERs) are added to the electric grid. Grid operators need to respond quickly to changes in supply and demand to balance the system as additional intermittent and distributed energy resources contribute to supply and demand imbalances.…

Outage Management Systems for the Water Utility

Many electric utilities have implemented some type of Outage Management System (OMS) to help manage outage information and restoration efforts on the electric distribution system. But these same systems are rarely employed by water utilities.  These have increased in sophistication and are often integrated into the utility’s Customer Information System (CIS), Interactive Voice Response...

MAS Radio: A critical but aging link for SCADA – Part 1

For years, Multiple Address (MAS) radio has been a popular solution used by utilities to reach and aggregate remote terminal units (RTUs). It is widely used by electric utilities, the oil and gas pipeline industry, water and wastewater systems, and railroads – allowing communications with remote devices that are critical to the reliable and safe operation of the systems which they are part...

Rules Around the 3.5 GHz Spectrum Could Change the Way 3.65GHz is Utilized

We previously looked at some of the changes that could be coming related to the 3.5 GHz and 3.65 GHz band, but what do these really mean for energy and utility users? Are there things current and future users should be considering or watching? The FCC recently released a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (FNPRM) that raised the possibility of how use of the 3.5 GHz band could be used as a...

Potential Expansion of the 3.65 GHz Band: More Opportunity? More Risk?

The demand for wireless broadband has exploded in recent years, but what impact will this have on the energy and utility industry as it continues to build the critical infrastructure to efficiently, reliably, and safely run the grid? Some of this growth in wireless broadband has been driven by the desire for mobile data or internet access in regions not easily reached by copper or fiber...
