Temporal Trends in U.S. Electricity Reliability

A major study of reliability trends shows that power interruptions have increased at a steady rate of about 2 percent per year over a period of ten years. These findings stand up robustly to analysis of measurement error and bias, and set the stage for study of what causal factors are at work.

Developing Smart Dispatch Tools in the PJM Market

Smart dispatch tools, advances in customer consumption management techniques and storage technologies can help offset operational challenges and energy price increases associated with the adoption of cleaner, lower-emitting and renewable supply resources.

China’s Smart Grid Program: One Goal, Two Main Lines, Three Stages and More

As the country's principal utility, the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) is dedicated to developing a smart grid, to promote clean energy, elevate energy efficiency, tackle climate change and reduce emissions. SGCC has launched a comprehensive program to build what it calls a Strong and Smart Grid, putting major efforts into grid planning, testing and research systems, demonstration projects, international cooperation and standardization.

Building Smart Grid Core Networks

The ability of a utility to create ubiquitous connectivity between all of its current data sources and decision-making systems is essential for the success of smart grid deployments. Yet the characteristics and performance requirements for wide-area networks are quite complex due to the multitude of grid applications and enterprise applications that are essential to utility operation.
