Readers find guidance on new energy storage solutions and electric value chain disruptors. Professionals learn how to overcome challenges related to integrating supply and demand diversity.Some alternative suppliers offer green plans, which typically have a higher price than more standard offers.

With green plans, the supplier pledges to buy “renewable energy certificates,” or RECs, from a company that produces power from renewable sources, such as wind. Basically, that company delivers an amount of renewable energy to somewhere in the electricity system .Electric power distribution is the final stage in the delivery of electric power; it carries electricity from the transmission system to individual consumers.

Distribution substations connect to the transmission system and lower the transmission voltage to medium voltage ranging between 2 kV and 35 kV with the use of transformers.

Primary distribution lines carry this medium voltage .
