Transmission and Distribution Solutions
Global Energy Usage Will Grow
The electric grid is the vast network of transmission lines, substations and power plants that deliver electric power to our homes and businesses. It is one of the great engineering feats of the 20th century.
But the current grid is inefficient, and has changed little in concept since the days of Thomas Edison. Up to ten percent of the power we generate is lost in transmission. Many power plants, often the dirtiest, are held in reserve—although still running and polluting—and used only to generate power several dozen hours per year. This costs consumers money and means unnecessary pollution from power plants.
A "smart" electric grid allows homes and businesses to use, as well as produce and sell, electricity in a more technologically advanced way.
Investment will be needed in asset monitoring for new and existing transformers and load tap changers.
