Keeping the lights on: Enabling reliability, automation and end user value with a Smart Grid

Our electric power grid is evolving into a dynamic two-way system integrating distributed generation, automation, communication, and advanced network intelligence, but how does this benefit the end user and ultimately, keep the lights on?

Webinar Overview

Our electric power grid is evolving into a dynamic two-way system integrating distributed generation, automation, communication, and advanced network intelligence, but how does this benefit the end user and ultimately, keep the lights on? In this webinar Christopher McCarthy, Managing Director of S&C Electric Company, will walk the audience through a scenario of how the old grid would deal with the occurrence of a fault, and then show how the new Smart Grid would mitigate the same fault.

The difference will highlight to customers why more investment is needed to upgrade the network to enable the grid of the future. Chris will also share a case study from S&C’s project with EPB of Chattanooga, where the city implemented a Smart Grid that serves 100% of its customers.
