Intelligent transition from a traditional one-way distribution system to a fully controllable and flexible power grid allowing for integration of distributed energy resources requires significant investments and industry insights.
At this year’s smart grid technical forum SGTech Europe 2015, more than 250 energy professionals will come together to share latest project experiences and technological innovations to support the industry’s drive towards the smart grid.
Landis+Gyr presents its first current transformer (CT) connected IDIS compliant smart meter for low voltage commercial, light industrial and high consumption residential customers.
Tomorrow morning it'll happen – the moon will pass the sun and cast a shadow across Europe. Solar power production will drop suddenly and rise quickly again. Unlike many other external circumstances affecting the grid, the solar eclipse comes with a long lead time and a very precise ETA. What we can’t predict accurately is the weather tomorrow morning and the depth of the swing. I bet that quite a few network operators would wish for a cloudy Friday morning, as it would significantly smoothen the impact of the eclipse.
The adoption of distribution intelligence will help utilities reap the benefits of their smart grid investments.
The solar eclipse will be a test for Europe’s energy grid, but the real concern is the ability to quickly restore the network.
