    A century after they were introduced, the gray, unsung hero of the power network – the transformer – is finally getting its day. Unless you work for a utility company, you hardly ever notice them. But recognition from the U.S. Government by including plans to develop strategic reserves of spare large power transformers in last year’s transportation bill, demonstrates that these electrical devices are critical components in the wake of storms, natural disasters, and unintentional accidents thatmore...

    This week, I had the opportunity to speak at the annual Energy Thought Summit, known as ETS, in Austin, TX. The city is known for its music, barbeque, but more recently, Austin is making its mark with its forward-thinking attitude toward technology and innovation. So, it’s fitting that it was in Austin where many of the power industry’s most innovative thinkers converged for a three-day conversation around how we can make the most of today’s energy opportunities while also planning for themore...

    Data centers form the backbone of practically every technology and industry. They are the critical, essential infrastructure that enable massive amounts of data being created every second to be shared across millions of connected devices. Often thought of as a room full of servers, a data center is much more than that. It relies on a complex infrastructure including electrical equipment, cooling, fire safety, and security solutions to run efficiently and reliably 24-7.more...

    Transformers may not always be at the forefront of conversations around grid resiliency or security, but they play an essential role in protecting critical electrical systems and delivering reliable power to millions of Americans. This topic has become more important in the last year with the release of the Quadrennial Energy Review (QER), a report that focuses on the state of U.S. energy infrastructure. This report highlights the most important risks that already exist within the electricalmore...

    On any given day, we send 294 billion emails and watch 500 years’ worth of videos on YouTube. This astronomical exchange of information has become a natural part of our everyday lives and seems common place since we’re able to do it with the click of a button, but the infrastructure supporting our growing data sharing habits is anything but easy. Data centers around the world are critical to making our digital lives possible, but as the information we exchange every day continues to grow,more...
