Our legacy grid has value and deserves continued investment. As we transition toward a more integrated grid that can accommodate new distributed energy sources, utility-scale renewables and energy storage, we need to keep the best of the old while embracing the new.
Today’s electric utility industry leadership faces many challenges. As we rebuild and harden an aging T&D infrastructure, we must embrace new technologies that often are introduced by fast-moving customers or competitors. We also face a new competitive landscape where utilities compete for transmission projects. These challenges and more are occurring in an era of low (or no) load growth.
In this webinar, Ken Bowes, Vice President-Engineering for Connecticut Light & Power, and Mike Beehler, Vice President of Burns & McDonnell’s Transmission & Distribution Division, will explore a number of issues facing utilities, regulators and public policy makers as they redefine the value of the grid and position the industry for the abundant opportunities of the future.
