Energy generation and transmission in the age of smart cities runs on a technology backbone. Utilities have long relied on workers to read meters, examine equipment and manage the daily operations of the electrical grid. Today, utility systems use smart meters to monitor status across the grid, reaching into homes for consumption data and management, connecting with substations to manage load distribution, analyzing demand curves and production forecasts to balance renewable generation with traditional power sources.
Smart energy implementations are transforming the way we generate, distribute and use electricity. Efficiency efforts within today’s smart buildings reduce waste and create opportunity for small-scale, localized generation. Renewable sources augmenting traditional generation require new technology for matching demand with power supplies, balancing the variability solar and wind through a combination of battery storage and quick-start generation.
We help you build out the systems to monitor power generation, transmission and distribution. We integrate the systems you need to process the vast amounts of incoming data that will support smart operational decisions. Our experience across the power industry and within buildings and construction gives us the perspective to help you connect across the smart energy spectrum, from the power producer to the consumer. We have built net zero energy use campuses and microgrids that integrate renewables, electric vehicles and other smart technologies critical to smart cities initiatives.
