Gordon Feller highlights four transmission technologies to watch out for in UtilityDive.

The C3 Take
  • As the United States looks to meet growing energy demand it will need to increase transmission capacity and reliability.
  • Several companies and startups are using innovative solutions to modernize America’s grid.
  • One such company is NewGrid which opens and closes transmission circuits to avoid bottlenecks and congestion for renewable power plants.

“Transmission developers are increasingly looking to ‘shared usage of right of way,’ negotiating directly with rail lines and governmental stakeholders of highways to use those corridors to bury transmission lines, according to Kevin Ludwig, associate vice president and grid solutions leader at Black & Veatch. There has also been a focus to use inland waterways with submarine cables which are paired with a high-voltage, direct current transmission system to move large amounts of power, Ludwig added.”
