The Power Industry is in the midst of transformation. The advent of new technology, the thirst for improvements and optimization, and a need for utilities to adapt to the changing landscape are all driving this push towards Grid Modernization.
Grid Modernization describes all the changes that are currently and will be needed to handle generation, transmission, and distribution of all energy sources. It also includes all the changes that we need to be prepared to meet new burgeoning technological and digital needs.
As with other recent Energy Central Special Issues (like the Cybersecurity Issue in April and the Customer Care Issue in May), recent events across the world have only served to solidify the essential nature of the utility industry and shown that staying ahead of the technology curve will be necessary to continue to meet the needs of the customer base.
With that in mind, Energy Central is asking for you to share your stories for our upcoming “Grid Modernization 2020: Pushing Boundaries” Special Issue Scheduled to Deploy on June 25th. Some topic ideas include but are not limited to:
- How has your utility made grid modernization a priority in each corner of business operations?
- What unexpected challenges have you had to overcome during the grid modernization process?
- How will the new grid transform the relationship between customer and utility?
- What are your predictions for how the grid modernization process will play out in the coming years?
- How has COVID-19 affected Grid Modernization projects?
- What other insights, questions, reports, ideas, or concerns about Grid Modernization do you want to share with the Energy Central community?
