Founder and CTO Matthew Williams will represent both Faraday Grid and LF Energy at DistribuTECH in New Orleans this year, where he will deliver a talk on why he believes an open source system is a necessary foundation for a prosperous energy future. Read this article in which Matthew explains how open source will fuel innovation in energy and find time and date for his presentation below.
The Faraday Grid is thrilled to announce the deployment of its revolutionary technology in London, one of the world’s most sophisticated electricity networks. The agreement will see the world’s first Faraday Grid utilised in a live network from early 2019 in partnership with the UK’s most innovative distribution network operator UK Power Networks, which characterised Faraday’s technology as ‘transformational.’ As the Faraday Grid expands through the rest of the UK and beyond, it promises to unlock new frontiers in innovation and underpin the sustainable welfare of generations to come.
A team led by Senior Engineer, Jagadeesh Gunda will represent Faraday Grid at the Conference on Sustainable Energy Supply and Energy Storage Systems – NEIS 2018 in Hamburg this September.
Faraday Grid is ramping up its U.S. activities this week as we present at the tenth annual Advanced Energy Conference (AEC) taking place in New York City in addition to meeting potential future partners. Our presence is part of a Scottish Development International ‘Mission and Learning Journey’ delegation that seeks to bring high-value, innovative solutions to companies and organisations in the U.S. market. Richard Dowling, Chief Economist and Head of Government Affairs outlines the benefits the Faraday Grid can bring to New York and the world.
A modern grid supplying modern electricity demands should be able to provide environmentally friendly energy securely and at an affordable price at once. There are a number of technology pathways being suggested to modernise the electricity grid, and adapt it to the new reality of distributed variable renewable generation. This article gives an overview of these technologies.
All actors in the electricity industry are responsible for security of supply. That is to say electricity provision to the end-users, within agreed levels of continuity and quality. For years, each part of the energy supply chain - from resource extraction to generation, transmission, distribution, markets, and increasingly end use - has relied on using digital systems. The digital connectivity of electricity grids and digital trading platforms for electricity are experiencing considerable innovation. This text considers grid resilience and risks to energy and cyber security in our society.
