Policy is not made by high level analysis.  As emerging technologies are incorporated into the grid, new visions and opportunities are also created on how to more efficiently operate the grid.   However, existing tools and models are not keeping pace with newly-introduced technology capabilities.  California’s recent ruling on energy storage demonstrates that today tools are being created that allow stakeholders to create the economic and technical justifications for recommendations on how to address the most pressing challenges facing our grid.

The challenges utility executives are wrestling with have evolved with the dynamic nature of the transmission grid.  Today’s utility executives need sophisticated, strategic tools to capitalize on new capabilities and conduct systems analysis at the proper level of fidelity in order to truly assess the viability and capabilities of the future grid.
