As our grid adapts to the rapidly changing customer environment, Portland General Electric (PGE) has taken a bold step and launched its Smart Grid Test Bed, a first-of-its-kind-project that aims to integrate smart grid technology on a scale never attempted in the United States prior to this. The project wishes to accelerate PGE’s vision for a clean energy future through partnering with customers in entirely new ways to decarbonize the grid. Ananth Sundaram, Chief Architect/Principal Manager of Integrated Grid with PGE, is leading this effort and is focused on key areas, such as customer Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Transportation Electrification. Ananth discussed all this with EnerNex host Ron Chebra (Vice President of Grid Modernization – EnerNex) from the show floor at DistribuTECH 2020 in San Antonio, USA.
