Voltage Optimization: Strategic Foundation for Intelligent, Modern Grids
Custom content for DVI by studioID
Grid-wide, intelligent voltage optimization technology (VO) helps utilities cut energy waste (and carbon emissions) while expanding grid capacity and flexibility. Deploying VO early in a grid modernization plan amplifies downstream benefits and performance.
This playbook shows how two utilities are using VO to build better grids of the future:
City of Naperville (Illinois) Utilities. Looking beyond peak-shaving success, this utility expects VO to support future deployment of EV chargers and other emerging technologies.
New Brunswick Power. A recent test project showed that NBP could save 50 GWh system-wide with VO. In addition to passing savings along to ratepayers, full VO deployment would help NBP add more renewable faster, while managing their intermittence.
