Technology advancements in software and hardware have fostered continued progress in strengthening and modernizing the grid, while the underlying design and architecture of the grid have not evolved at the same pace. This is according to Reimagining the Grid, a new white paper published by Southern California Edison (SCE).

"Just as Pathway 2045 is SCE's roadmap for enabling a clean energy future for California, Reimagining the Grid is a comprehensive assessment to address how the grid must change," said Kevin Payne, president and CEO of SCE. "We are working to make sure the electric system is ready for the major shifts in how customers will use electricity to support California's ambitious greenhouse gas reduction goals."

Reimagining the Grid points out that a significant increase in electric vehicles and distributed energy resources such as customer-sited solar and battery storage - paired with the growth of large-scale renewable energy resources that are more variable in nature - will require the electric grid to manage a growing set of challenges.
