In the latest episode of the 'OT Security Made Simple podcast' , Klaus Mochalski, founder and CEO of Rhebo, sits down with Todd Wiedman, Chief Security Officer of Landis+Gyr, to cover a range of topics, shedding light on the evolving challenges and solutions within the realm of AMI security.
Communication is a core component of any smart grid or AMI implementation. Depending on application use cases, geography, rural/urban areas, or existing infrastructure, however, a grid operator may choose PLC, mesh, or cellular communications. With an increasingly diverse and active consumer base that now includes prosumers, electric vehicle charging, renewables, and more, how can utilities ensure that all these segments are served without disrupting their AMI?
Whether it is a first-time installation, a second wave implementation, or a transformational upgrade, building an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is a journey. What steps do you go through once you've committed to taking your AMI to the next level?
With the electrification of transportation and heating sectors, explosion of EV charging and a general rise in energy demand and prices, the UK energy network is stressed in numerous ways as we drive towards net zero targets. That is why we organized a symposium on Half hourly metering and Grid Management at our UK office in Manchester.
Bringing together industry colleagues and stakeholders from across the UK made for great discussions around the issues and challenges in grid management - from billing through to power quality management. With the shift from fossil-based to zero-carbon energy sources, grid operators are coming across completely new challenges - and our collective effort is needed in addressing these challenges, not just at the local metering level but all the way through the network.
Ensuring quality of supply and grid resilience is vital to reliable and efficient supply of electricity. However, maintaining high-quality power delivery and a resilient grid can get tricky in an increasingly complex and dynamic grid that needs to accommodate renewables, EV charging and high activity from prosumers. How can grid planners and network operators achieve their goals of maintaining a safe, reliable and resilient grid ? In this blog, we highlight seven ways how a grid monitoring service can help.
As the world moves towards a more sustainable and decentralized energy future, grid operators face increasing challenges in maintaining grid resilience, asset and energy management, grid balancing, safety, and security. What are these challenges and how can they be addressed?
