The electric industry is at a major crossroad, and traditional approaches to problem-solving are being replaced by new technologies including distributed resources, microgrids, storage, and demand response. The steady, one-way flow of electricity that has been around for more than a century is transforming into an active, multidirectional stream of power that shifts back and forth between customers across the utility grid. Additionally, the penetration of wind, solar, storage and load response are contributing to reshaping power system analysis.
Decisions affecting the T&D networks made today will affect how power is supplied for decades to follow. EPE’s increasing number of planners, software developers and designers recognize the need to update T&D technologies along with models driving the grid now. Both power suppliers and consumers are responding to the rapidly changing environment and market. We invite you to discuss by dropping by Booth 12051 where our engineers would be happy to discuss the tools we use to support our clients.
