The grid of the future: where today’s challenges meet tomorrow’s possibilities
Discover how technology is empowering utility companies to meet the challenges of today—and begin building the infrastructure of tomorrow.
With over 9,000 electric generating units representing more than 1 million megawatts of generating capacity and connected to 600,000-plus miles of transmission lines, the U.S. electric grid is no less than, to quote the Department of Energy, “an engineering marvel.” While the current system has a (mostly) respectable track record in meeting Americans’ demand for power, recent developments are driving utilities to accelerate their efforts to create a more efficient, data-driven, and environmentally responsible grid. Fortunately, advances in technology are providing utility companies with the capabilities to effectively meet the challenges of today—and begin building the infrastructure of tomorrow.
