The energy industry is transforming as the grid evolves to incorporate renewable sources like solar, wind and battery storage.
But these renewable energy sources aren’t solely owned by typical producers like utility companies. Instead, consumers are quickly morphing into prosumers who both take power from the grid and return power to the grid through distributed energy resources (DERs), which utilities can leverage to help meet increasing power demands.
In this playbook, we’ll look at how connectivity can help utilities with energy transition and grid modernization through three technology solutions — connected sensors, 5G public/private/hybrid networks and network slicing. In this playbook, you’ll learn:
