Nowadays, technology makes life easier for us. We are surrounded by so many “smart” devices that do many of our daily tasks for us. There’s an abundance of this newer technology from smart wearables, to smart homes and smart grids. As technology advances it will only become more ingrained into all aspects of our lives. A study last year by IBM predicted the upcoming five smart technology trends for the next five years will include smarter classrooms, stores, medicine, privacy and protection, and cities. The evolution of technology isn’t stopping anytime soon.

Energy Trends Point Toward Smart Grid Innovation

Posted by Sam Eichberg

Jul 16, 2014 9:00:00 AM

Since the world first started integrating electricity into everyday life, electricity and power has been based around “the grid.” The grid is the system that creates, transforms, delivers and even stores all of the electricity and power that we use, while also transferring power from suppliers to consumers.  Including wires, switches, transformers, substations, meters, gages and more, the grid’s infrastructure is vast and broad (the size of the entire continent), yet also intricate and detailed (each individual consumer is connected). It powers everything in our society, from power plants to homes, and everything in-between. The grid is our national engine and keeps our society running at all times.

Gas Gen-Sets Becoming Viable Energy Source in Face of Steep Power Demand

Posted by Pritil Gunjan

Apr 22, 2014 9:00:00 AM

Although the world is shifting away from oil-based fuels towards more sustainable energy sources, several reasons deem renewables, like wind, solar and hydro-electric systems, impractical for quite a few sections of society and industry: not enough wind, too many cloudy days, and insufficient watercourse.

In the wake of acute power shortages, this leaves us with very few alternatives, one of which is using a generator. Gas-fired generators are gradually becoming the choice for both standby and prime power.

How Technology Is Impacting the Transmission and Distribution Sectors

Posted by Edgar Van der Meer

Mar 26, 2014 9:00:00 AM

There are many challenges being faced by the players in the Transmission and Distribution sector at the moment. Not least of these challenges is keeping up with the latest in innovation and technology. With the advancement of the rollout of smart-grid technology and an increasing trend towards distributed generation, the aging grid infrastructure in many countries is holding back development and deployment of the technological capacity we possess. One of the questions asked in this is, who is at an advantage, the large ‘traditional’ OEMs or the smaller innovators.

The T&D networks are continuously evolving in both size and nature. They must grow in order to cope with ever rising demand. In the past it was simply a matter of adding more lines, transformers and ancillary equipment, today the technology of the systems is often able to substitute increased sophistication for physical growth, or to reduce the additions required by making the system more efficient.

EU 2030 Framework to Impact Energy Industry

Posted by Paul Ricketts

Mar 12, 2014 8:37:00 AM

After conducting detailed market research and analysis of energy prices and costs, the European Union (EU) recently announced a long-term renewable energy framework aimed at creating energy security, regulatory stability, a low-carbon economy and affordable energy for European consumers. The framework is targeting a 40% drop in greenhouse gas emissions below 1990 levels and a binding target across EU Nations of at least 27% renewable energy by 2030.

In developing a long-term energy framework, the EU is looking to create a stable environment in which investors can support innovation, leading to the development of new technologies. As the EU makes steady progress towards a low-carbon economy, it is hoped that such a long-term approach to developing a competitive and secure energy system reduces member states' dependence on imported energy. This would increase the security of their energy supplies, creating long-term job opportunities and growth.
