Description (excerpt):

Discover how technology is empowering utility companies to meet the challenges of today—and begin building the infrastructure of tomorrow.

With over 9,000 electric generating units representing more than 1 million megawatts of generating capacity and connected to 600,000-plus miles of transmission lines, the U.S. electric grid is no less than, to quote the Department of Energy, “an engineering marvel.” While the current system has a (mostly) respectable track record in meeting Americans’ demand for power, recent developments are driving utilities to accelerate their efforts to create a more efficient, data-driven, and environmentally responsible grid. Fortunately, advances in technology are providing utility companies with the capabilities to effectively meet the challenges of today—and begin building the infrastructure of tomorrow.
