Putting a Price on Carbon in Canada

One of the keystones of Canada’s climate change initiatives is carbon pricing. According to the World Bank, this economically based method of reducing greenhouse gas emissions is used by dozens of countries and is increasingly supported by the private sector.

Grid Optimization: What Does it Mean?

Grid optimization—a fairly new term that you might be unfamiliar with—includes three major components: demand response, the management of distributed energy resources, and the implementation of non-wire alternative programs. Franklin Energy is working hard to evolve with the changing needs of utilities and end-use customers by developing innovative programs and products. We are breaking down silos within the industry and integrating new technologies, focusing more than ever on providing grid optimization services for our clients. Let’s take a deeper dive into each element to get a better feel for our vision of the future of our industry.

Opportunities and Challenges for Distributed Energy Resources

For over a decade, consumers have had the ability to bypass utilities and generate their own power through rooftop solar and other distributed energy resources (DERs). So it’s not a surprise that utilities see the integration of DERs as both a challenge and an opportunity.

Outlook for Utility Regulation: Hopes and Predictions from Survey Respondents

Innovation is occurring so quickly for electrical utilities that policymakers can’t keep up. Consequently, outmoded regulations were an overwhelming concern for the more than 600 U.S. and Canadian utility company executives who participated in Utility Dive’s 2017 State of the Electric Utility Survey.

Food for Thought: Making the Case for an iDSM Sandwich

A few years ago on a weekend scouting adventure, we had a morning cook-off. Knowing the audience was chiefly tween boys, my son and I conducted rigorous scientific analysis and determined that donuts, eggs, bacon, and cheese could be a strong combination; these ingredients are great on their own, but they’re wickedly delicious together. As we were driving out on Friday night, we stopped to pick up a couple dozen Krispy Kreme donuts, eggs to match, a few pounds of cheese, and lots of bacon. When the time came to prepare our grand breakfast, we sliced the donuts in half, grilled them up, and inserted a proper over-easy egg, some crispy bacon, and a slice of cheese. Wow, it was delicious – and a winner!
