Grid Modernization Resources

Grid Modernization Resources from IEEE

Overview

One of the biggest frontiers in electrical engineering today is the development and implementation of smart grid technology. Fueled by the global demand for greener technologies and alternative fuels, environmentally-friendly smart grid technology has the ability to stimulate stagnated economies and change the way power is delivered to electricity consumers around the world.

Virtually every crucial economic and social function depends on the secure, reliable operation of power and energy infrastructures. Energy, electric power, telecommunications, transportation and financial infrastructures have become increasingly interdependent, posing new challenges for their resilient and efficient operation. All of these interdependent infrastructures are complex, geographically dispersed, non-linear, and interacting both among themselves and with their human owners, operators and users.

Coming soon from IEEE, Modernizing the Smart Grid is a 4-course program designed to get you and your team up to speed quickly on the latest Smart Grid technologies. Learn more how your organization can benefit from IEEE training here.
