How do you provide efficient and sustainable electricity 24X7 for fishermen and farmers cultivating rubber trees in one of the four villages at Kenti Island? Until very recently, these four villages in Kenti Island, Myanmar, received electricity through a diesel generator owned by a private player. At that time electricity was available only for 4 hours in the night on an intermittent basis. The livelihoods of the farmers and the people in these villages depends on the reliable and continuous electricity supply.
New projects will create a safer and more reliable system while reducing greenhouse gases to meet California’s clean energy goals
It seems like a simple enough idea — Why can’t the power company identify the place on an electrical circuit that caused an outage so fewer customers are affected and it takes less time to fix?
Until recently, Southern California Edison found the origin of an outage just like it has done for more than 100 years — dispatch a troubleman to patrol the entire circuit until the cause could be identified.
New Hampshire faces both challenges and opportunities in the transition to a reliable and affordable clean energy future. From infrastructure investments to workforce development, rising energy costs, and more, there is much to consider as the Granite State looks to increase our competitiveness and expand our energy options.

Data plays foundational role in enabling smart cities
For decades, the definition of “infrastructure” has remained unchanged and was used to define roads, bridges, electricity and water delivery systems, among other examples. But as cities continue to build upon smart city efforts, the concept and very definition of infrastructure is changing.
