Visioneering the Private Networked Grid of the Future

Letter from the Community Team:

Creating a smart connected grid of the future is imperative for utilities. To do that means to look beyond modernization and imagine a scenario that enables them to keep up with the demands of an increasingly sophisticated customer and new and increasingly complex technology, as well as the ubiquity of two-way energy flows and the integration of DER and microgrids. It likely will take a redefinition of how our traditional electric grids are configured, how they react to external forces, and how they interoperate and interact with grids managed by other stakeholders.

In an effort to guide this conversation, Energy Central has teamed up with Anterix to present this Hot Topic issue,  “Visioneering the Private Networked Grid of the Future: How Do You See Private LTE Networks Shaping the Future of Utilities?” In this special Anterix/Energy Central issue, you will learn how thought leaders and experts from across the industry “visioneer” the future of the electric grid.

If you have wondered how the electric grid of tomorrow will keep up with the rapid change and disruption facing the energy sector, you will want to read these articles.  Please share your thoughts in the comments section at the end of the article – we strive to start a conversation with each of our issues, and this is no exception. We rely on our community members to continue the discussion and see where it takes us.

We look forward to seeing you in the Community!
