While demand flexibility programs promise the ability to shift consumption in response to changes in supply or price, implementing these programs doesn’t come without risk and can create new challenges for grid operations.
MICATU surveyed more than 100 utility employees, primarily within North America, to identify common obstacles and potential solutions for mitigation. In this whitepaper we discuss:
What areas have been most challenging for utilities, and what issues they foresee in the future
How Utilities are incorporating distributed technologies and systems into existing infrastructure
How Optical, Non-Conductive Sensing can provide more accurate measurements and safer ways to gather data
