Finding best available technologies for meeting energy needs today and tomorrow: energy efficiency, demand response,, solar, wind, electric vehicles, biofuels and smart grid. It’s all the innovations that make the energy we use more secure, clean, and affordable. The energy world's best hopes lie in what's happening in the digital realm, especially in data analytics.

G. Microgrids
updated march 24, 2017
The goals of both the smart grid and the microgrid are the same: to maximize generation assets through embedded intelligence while dramatically boosting efficiencies, thereby minimizing costs. However, the Smart Grid tends to be a top-down solution and Microgrids are bottom-up.

F. Cost of High Penetration Renewables
Coming Soon

E. Improved Volt/Var Control
updated tuesday, march 28, 2017
Today’s digital devices are highly sensitive to variations in power quality

D. Advanced Meter Infrastructure – (AMI)
friday, november 4, 2011
By 2012, every electricity consumer of the three big utilities in California will have smart meters which will give consumers detailed information about how they use energy and will enable new technologies automating customers’ responses

C. Outage and Power Quality Management
tuesday, August 9, 2011
Every day approximately half a million Americans experience blackouts of two hours or more and power interruptions cost our nation’s economy more than $100 billion each year

B. Distribution Automation
updated monday april 18, 2016
A self-healing modern grid detects and responds to routine problems and quickly recovers if they occur, minimizing downtime and financial loss.

A. Distribution Network
Current distribution network was not designed for two way power flow. We need monitoring and control in the distribution world like we have in the transmission world
