Transforming the Grid: New Technologies for the Transmission and Distribution Industry


Today’s transmission and distribution industry is being confronted with significant new challenges including regulations to increase renewable energy generation, heavier power demands, an aging infrastructure, decommissioning of SF6 gas-insulated equipment, and new smart grid technologies. In the U.S., where the average age of electrical installations is more than 30 years, manufacturers and asset owners are seeking new technologies that will improve the security, reliability, and efficiency of the switching and transformer equipment that powers substations across the country.

This 60-minute Webinar will review customer needs and market trends, highlight advanced material and product solutions, and address the operational and environmental requirements of a next-generation electrical system.
