This white paper summarizes developments in four key elements of grid modernization:
|1 Distributed energy resources as an integral part of the grid|
More regions are seeing the decentralization of renewable energy sources as a means to strengthen their infrastructure.
|2 Bidirectional EV charging to help balance the grid|
Electric vehicles (EVs) play a significant part of the smart grid, from forecasting charging needs to conserving power or adding excess energy back to the grid.
|3 Real-time data, monitoring and control of the grid|
Wired and wireless technologies enable the transfer of real-time data for the grid, as well as automation, distribution and control.
|4 Connected battery-powered gas and water meters|
The connected grid is about more than electricity; gas and water utilities can adopt a variety of simple, low-cost solutions for connectivity, sensing and control.
