Equipping transmission and distribution for the future

Pressure on transmission and distribution infrastructure is increasing as global operators look to serve their growing markets, driving a focus on enhancing efficiency in energy delivery across the sector. At a network level, smart grids are deploying advanced technology to help reduce waste and cost. For local distribution, quick and efficient connections are requiring more responsive supply chains.

Operators are prioritising environmental targets to drive the transition to a greener, more sustainable energy sector. Security is also a concern, with systems facing cyber attacks and substations, transformers and power lines vulnerable to physical threats.

Whether for new build or for existing assets incorporating new technology configurations, conventional power and renewable energy programmes comprise interconnected projects. These diverse projects can include plant construction, technology integration and storage and grid infrastructure as part of the transition to more sustainable energy.
