Power Update


Three areas you should not overlook when it comes to storm readiness

It has often been said that nothing can make or break a utility like a storm. In light of the recent aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, which has raised awareness about what is working and not working with our power equipment, we would like to share three important ways to improve grid resiliency in the face of increasingly extreme storms and to prevent against future damage.

White papers

EVs are here, in part driven by environmental concerns, and in part driven by economic opportunities and keen consumer interest. EVs—in concert with the integration of renewables—are poised to re-make the power grid, offering enticing revenue streams and grid services. Solutions are now being developed to build in the flexibility as well as efficiency and cleanliness required to meet the new demand that is expected to arise from EV use.
