Leveraging smart grid technology to manage distributed energy resources

Register now

Unlike ever before, the power industry is facing unprecedented challenges. Aging infrastructure, changing regulations, and the integration of distributed energy resources are dramatically changing the power landscape. While the convergence of Information Technology and Operations Technology (IT/OT) can help utilities overcome many of these challenges, it can be complicated to navigate. Which solution is best for a particular application? Can it be integrated with existing systems? How do I build a business case? Learn the answers to these questions and more with ABB’s free grid modernization webinar series, where we will provide POWERful insights for the evolving grid and solutions to overcome the challenges facing the power industry today.

Asset management

September 30 at 11 am EDT

Transitioning from costly asset time-based maintenance to condition- based maintenance has been a long term goal of many utility organizations. 

The difficulty lies in the creation of a solution that can interpret SCADA data, historical data and other back office data to model an asset’s behavior with the ability to:

  • Prioritize maintenance tasks

  • Compare asset performance to maintenance activities… and

  • Identify the criticality of an asset

Sign up for this webinar to discover how to construct a solution, which data is needed, and the skill sets required. Take the first step in the journey to asset condition based maintenance by registering for this webinar.

Simple steps to grid modernization

October 16 at 2 pm EDT

For any utility, deciding on the optimal smart grid solution that maximizes both customer service and operational effectiveness can be difficult under the best of circumstances. Combine that with constrained budgets, personnel challenges and the return-on-investment demands for a public power utility and the decision becomes even more complex.

Join our webinar to learn how to develop your individual roadmap. We will also examine a real-world example of this incremental approach to implementing smart grid technology that helps ensure an adequate ROI, while providing a firm foundation for future enhancements. 

It doesn't have to be all or nothing


 

The future of energy storage, beyond the batteries 

November 13 at 11 am EST

Often christened as the holy grail of the utility grid, energy storage is undergoing significant and unprecedented changes, both technically and commercially.

Technically, there has been incremental improvement of existing energy storage mediums, but innovation in the power electronics and controls has enabled these energy storage system to increase performance in complex applications. Using advanced controls and algorithms, an energy storage system is able to instantly respond to the grid, facilitate precise control, and deliver enhanced reliability.

Commercially, we are seing moderate price declines due to advances in operations and economies of scale. In addition, regulatory overhaul in key markets have allowed for a higher ROI for energy storage systems for certain applications. 

This webinar will cover the technological and commercial innovations in this nascent market.

Is energy storage a viable solution?


Leveraging smart grid technology to manage distributed energy resources

December 16 at 2 pm EST

It’s well understood that distributed generation provides many benefits, such as adding supply where it is needed, reducing infrastructure costs, and improving power reliability. However, there are also unintended consequences and operating challenges inherent with adding more renewable generation to the grid.

Attend this webinar to discover how emerging smart grid technologies can help utilities engage customers and manage the interconnection of renewable generation to operate the grid, maintain voltages, and provide data on when to dispatch distributed energy resources.
