Non-wires Alternatives: Analytics and Concepts in Changing Grid and A Changing Climate

November 11, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This talk will discuss various aspects of non-wires alternatives (NWAs) and will attempt to bring together industry and academic perspectives on the topic. First, the talk will discuss popular NWA technologies and applications in power systems. Then, a discussion of the methods to optimize and operationalize NWA solutions will be presented, looked at from the perspective of the utility as well as third parties, like regulatory bodies, developers and electric customers. Finally, the talk will focus on two critical topics around implementation in today’s power systems: analytics tools that can support NWA analyses and how the NWA applicability, technologies, planning and generally “a-day-in-the-life-of” an NWA will change in light of climate change and associated country-wide mitigation and adaptation efforts.
