This item is part of the Grid Modernization - May 2021 SPECIAL ISSUE, click here for more

With vast resources being poured into the economic recovery, upgrading and modernizing the grid has become a prime target and talking point for leaders from the federal down to the local governments.  That's why this month's Special Issue on Grid Modernization 2021: Pushing Boundaries couldn't have been more timely or appropriate. 

Earlier this month, we put out a call to the Energy Central Community to share what was on their minds regarding the challenges today's grid is facing and the solutions that will overcome those hurdles, on the future technologies and innovations that will start transforming the grid this year, on the investment being made in the modern grid, and more.

Your access to Member Features is limited.

As expected, the community followed through with some can't-miss thought leadership insights that I feel confident can directly be taken as a roadmap to the future of the grid! In fact, we received so many thought-provoking submissions that we had to split this issue into two parts. 

I hope you will take some time to read through some of the articles or listen to our PowerPerspectives Podcast interviews included in our  Grid Modernization 2021: Pushing Boundaries series.   

And as always, I'll note that the release of the Special Issue isn't the end of the topic, but really just the beginning. Let’s make this Special Issue as interactive as possible: all the authors who submitted articles encourage and implore you to leave comments, questions, and ideas in the comments section to which they can respond.  Note: you’ll need to sign in to your profile to comment, and if you don’t yet have a profile—create one here, join the community in which the article is posted, and share your thoughts and questions ASAP.
