The question of smart grid in Israel is not if but when and how, and the country should start with a trial and determining an adequate incentive to implement the smart grid technology, a new paper from the Israeli Smart Energy Association (ISEA) recommends.

Israel: Roadmap for smart grid implementation

The ‘Roadmap for Smart Grid Implementation in Israel’ is aimed to analyze the smart grid in an objective manner from the point of view of the national economy. The focus is on an enhanced smart meter deployment, including the technology, engineering, regulation, legal, marketing and economic aspects, and the role of the local industry. According to the paper, Israel is an "interesting case". On the one hand, the Israel Electric Company (IEC) has installed advanced control and supervision systems in the transmission and distribution segments.

Microgrids are poised to grow as large utilities see a growth vehicle. Editor's note: This article is part of a spotlight series focused on microgrids.

Microgrids are poised to grow as large utilities see a growth vehicle

To see all the articles in the series, check out the spotlight page. Microgrids by definition are small, but they are attracting the attention and capital of large utilities. In June, Southern Co. bolstered its $425 million acquisition of PowerSecure International by forming a strategic alliance with Advanced Microgrid Solutions to jointly develop and deploy behind-the-meter distributed energy resources across the United States.

That move was preceded by Southern’s October partnership with Bloom Energy for 50 MW of distributed fuel cells. Not so long ago, microgrids were seen as a threat to utilities, a third-party encroachment that could eat away at their traditional business model. Even absent the threat from microgrids, utilities are feeling pressure from their savviest customers, the commercial and industrial sector for whom energy costs can represent a large portion of their business costs. What you need to know about microgrids. An article from Published Aug. 29, 2017 Microgrids are an old concept, but recently they've garnered renewed interest within the power sector. For years, utilities have invested in centralized plants, building miles and miles of transmission lines to ship power where it needs to go.

DOE identifies possible microgrid opportunities in Puerto Rico

Department of Energy has identified 200 locations for potential microgrids on Puerto Rico that could help the island's power grid become more resilient, including 11 MW of capacity that could be used to power critical infrastructure such as water treatment plants and hospitals.A DOE blog post by Bruce Walker, assistant secretary for the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability, also revealed details about the damage and recovery efforts, including that 18 substations were flooded in the storm and three could not be brought back online due to severe damage.In the two months since Hurricane Maria battered the island, about 58% of its generation has been brought back online and the recovery efforts have been overshadowed by a controversial restoration contract island officials signed with Montana-based Whitefish Energy.

Dive Insight: In a blog post last week, DOE's Walker said he has spent more than two weeks in Puerto Rico and the U.S. What you need to know about microgrids.

When President Donald Trump announced the U.S. would withdraw from the Paris climate accord, he said he represented "Pittsburgh, not Paris. " Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto disagreed. Usually, power grids rely on a far-flung network. A pilot site for microgrids is at the Pitt Ohio trucking company in nearby Harmar, Pa. "We're anticipating about a seven to eight-year return on investment," said Maug. Gregory Reed, head of the energy program at the University of Pittsburgh's engineering school, designed the grid.

"This is really a first step in the direction we want to take for larger scale installations," he added. Microgrid Portfolio of Activities. LO3 Energy at EventHorizon 2017 - Scott Kessler. How Smart is a Smart Grid? By: Dr Gareth Evans - Updated: 29 Sep 2015| *Discuss The world has become an increasingly ‘smart’ place, with in-built intelligence and enhanced functionality now coming as standard features in everything from bombs to phones – and now it seems the race is on to smarten up the grid too, and change the way we get our electricity forever.

How Smart is a Smart Grid?

It promises to bring something for everyone – big energy savings for consumers, more efficient use of existing capacity, a reduced risk of power outages, better integration for renewables and an incentive for small scale domestic generation.
