Our Nation’s power grid is due for a transformative upgrade. In order for this evolution to happen, collaboration across Government, Industry, and Academia is paramount. The complexity of the Energy Grid is unique, and the integration of operational technology with information technology is critical to affording the benefits of distributed energy resources and intelligent two-way communications. Grid Modernization is a critical element to a safe, clean, modern energy infrastructure. Decarbonization, Industrial IoT, Spectrum Allocation, secure telecommunications, and Private Wireless Broadband are just a few of the considerations that each and every utility is focused on as we migrate toward a reliable and resilient Grid of the Future.
