Ten Smart Grid “Must-Haves” for Municipal Utilities
Published on 05/30/2017 | Operations
Municipal utilities should be sure to select smart grid solutions that can help them meet their energy initiatives of today and enable all of the transformations needed for tomorrow. Key to achieving both is the selection of a smart grid platform that can support multiple applications – from advanced metering (including electricity, gas and water) to distribution automation (DA) to demand response (DR). A single, uni ed smart grid platform is the best way for municipal utilities to maximize return on investment (ROI), by helping you succeed with existing projects and building a foundation that can easily expand to serve your community for decades to come.
In addition, no matter what smart grid application you start with, an open systems-based platform provides the strongest foundation to ensure future interoperability, best-of-breed selection and the lowest cost of ownership.
With so much at stake, municipal utilities must carefully evaluate alternatives when selecting new smart grid technology. By paying close attention to the following “must-have” requirements, you can succeed in choosing a smart grid solution that not only solves problems now but also delivers on a vision for a more connected future.
