Power Delivery Intelligence Initiative (PDi2) hosted the Education Session at the recent Fall 2019 conference of the Insulated Conductors Committee of the IEEE Power and Energy Society in Scottsdale, Arizona. To support its mission to help the North American power industry make informed decisions about transmission and distribution infrastructure investment, PDi2 pulled together a panel of utility experts to present case studies on undergrounding projects that resulted in increased reliability and resiliency of their systems.
