The Neural Grid is an advanced network of energy and information flowing in both directions between supplier and consumer and leveraging centralized control, distributed intelligence, and ubiquitous communications. With a complex backbone of IT platforms, connected to a distributed network of generation sources, data collection and analysis tools, and autonomous grid control systems, the Neural Grid enables utilities to achieve high levels of grid performance, reliability, and optimization not otherwise possible.  

One grid performance aspect in particular—reliability and outage management—showcases the importance of a cohesive and autonomous grid and highlights the real, tangible benefits to both utilities and their customers through the integration of Neural Grid technologies. More important than the individual technologies, though, is the intelligent and interconnected network of hardware and software systems across the energy delivery network. This webinar discusses a synergistic strategy for grid modernization and highlights key enabling technologies and systems that utilities can deploy in harmony to create a more stable, reliable, resilient, and flexible grid.
