Distribution transformer fleets were deployed decades ago, with little to no awareness of today’s unprecedented grid-edge challenges and increasing climate change impacts. Given these facts, combined with an aging grid infrastructure, the need for utility operators to increase their proactive intra-grid visibility has never been more important. The need to improve Reliability, enhance Resilience, safely integrate DER, reduce GHG emissions, facilitate Electric Vehicle adoption, and deliver Fire Mitigation solutions has never been more critical. In turn, our utility operators need useful, actionable Data.
Unique, timely, accurate, granular, reliable intra-grid Data is securely delivered to utility operators via GRID20/20’s Advanced Transformer Infrastructure (ATI) solution. Proactive intra-grid visibility is cost-effectively made possible via the company’s versatile intra-grid sensor solution suite. Enabling operators to address the myriad of present-day, and unfolding intra-grid and grid-edge challenges.
Additionally, given the increasing devastation caused by fires/wildfires, the company’s emerging GRIDWIDE FIRE-NET offering introduces a novel fire mitigation solution. Revealing downed conductors, Early Detection of outdoor smoke, fire, humidity and ambient temperature changes, providing Automated Alerts capability, and facilitating ongoing Situational Awareness during fire/wildfire events, GRIDWIDE FIRE-NET is a game-changing innovation. This solution proactively addresses Grid-Asset Failure Prevention, enables the detection of grid induced and/or non-grid induced (e.g., lightning, arson) fires/wildfires, and therefore elevates public safety protections throughout the communities served by operators. This technology advancement aims to decrease operator liability risk, protect against shareholder devaluation, lessen insurance losses, reduce environmental damage, and avoid state/local economic devastation caused by fire/wildfire events.
