With the rapidly growing use of distributed generation, renewable energy sources, and electric vehicles, utilities in Europe are navigating major changes in how electricity is supplied and delivered.
S&C’s expanded team offers deep expertise in local issues and requirements and can provide expert counsel on how to improve the reliability and efficiency of the grid amidst these changes.
“Electric power delivery systems are growing increasingly complex,” says Andrew Jones, managing director, S&C Europe. “S&C’s growing Power Systems Services team offers hands-on support to help customers manage the biggest changes in power delivery systems in over a century.”
Everybody’s talking about the Smart Grid. But not everyone agrees on its meaning. Or its benefits. Many so-called “Smart Grid technologies” haven’t been proven in the field. Or they require extensive engineering by the end user, to the point that these technologies aren’t practical to implement or maintain.
“S&C can make sense out of all this hype. With a century-long history of innovation, extensive distribution automation experience, and deep knowledge of today’s power grid, they are creating solutions for the intelligent, dynamic grid needed to power the world’s green energy future. S&C offer proven solutions that greatly improve grid reliability, stability, and efficiency today, while positioning the grid to meet complex future requirements.”
S&C, with global headquarters in Chicago, USA, S&C is applying its heritage of innovation to address challenges facing the world’s power grids and is thus shaping the future of reliable electricity delivery. The mission of employee-owned S&C is to continually develop new solutions for electricity delivery, fostering the improved efficiency and reliability required for the intelligent grid.
