A growing number of states are exploring grid modernization to keep pace with fast-evolving technological advances and growing distributed generation. The smart grid concept ties together multiple initiatives ranging from solar-battery microgrids to vehicle-to-grid power flow management, and grid hardening to support reliability and resiliency. It may also include advanced meters, which are a pivotal part of utility efforts to facilitate dynamic pricing. Grid modernization enables utilities to improve reliability – delivering power supply to end users without interruption – while managing an increasingly diverse resource mix.
