Grid Communications


The Art of Communications Technology

North America’s critical infrastructure grabs headlines in two ways. First, if catastrophe occurs (a switch opens or a transformer blows) or power grid equipment fails, the media will be on standby to report the story. Second, when political leaders talk about investing in critical infrastructure...

T&D Sensing and Measurement Market Overview

When it comes to T&D Sensing and Measurement, the electric grid is changing. The industry is undergoing a dramatic shift in the mix of generated electric power, driving demand for grid transparency, reliability, and utility accountability. To meet these demands, utilities must change the way...

U.S. Electric Grid Under Cyberattack

Taking a stand against threats to ensure reliability BY JOHN FINNIGAN, Environmental Defense Fund If Ben Franklin lived today, he might say that nothing is certain but death, taxes, and cyberattacks. The U.S. electric grid is under constant cyberattack, according to a survey of electric utilities...

CIP Compliance Yields Security Complacency

As the big push behind NERC CIP v5/v6 comes to some form of “conclusion”, most U.S. utility executives are breathing a huge sigh of relief. Their efforts to make their high and medium impact facilities compliant are finally completing.  However for some insiders, there is a concern that a state of compliance complacency is now manifesting in the U.S.

  • The expectation is that billions of dollars in compliance spending should have realized “enough”...
