Energy & Grid Management

News and analysis concerning the management of energy demand and supply on the electricity grid. Grid modernisation and smart grid upgrades, as well as distributed energy resources and storage form part of this category. Trends in own generation, net metering, influence of prosumers and energy management tools at the grid edge also influence grid management. Furthermore, strategies to boost grid resilience, for example in the case of a typhoon or cyber attack, strategies to ensure security of supply, energy efficiency measure, smart buildings and load balancing fall within the energy and grid management  category.
