Recent Events

On July 26th 2022, IEEE (PI)2 Austin Hosted a Technical Meeting on the continual “MODERNIZATION OF DISTRIBUTION GRIDS” presented by  Dr. Julio Romero Agüero of Quanta Technology

This presentation provided an overview of grid modernization activities and smart distribution systems, and discussed objectives, trends, modern equipment, technologies, leading industry practices, solutions and methodologies used by the electric power industry to modernize distribution grids and facilitate the adoption of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and electric transportation. A cohesive and holistic view is critical to help adapt to this rapidly evolving and increasingly complex area. Distribution lines will increasingly need the capability of operation safely and securely with two-way power flow, and generation scheduling will change. Increased spinning and standby reserves (generally fossil and nuclear) will be critical to back up for cleaner energy sources such as hydro, solar and wind. The speaker had much more information to share, and left the attendees interested in more.

About the Speaker:

Dr. Julio Romero Agüero is Vice President, Strategy & Business Innovation at Quanta Technology. He has 27 years of experience, he provides leadership to Quanta Technology in the areas of technology and business strategy, innovation, grid modernization, distribution systems planning, reliability, resiliency, and integration of distributed energy resources and emerging technologies.
