Leveraging Utility Partners for Innovation, Resiliency and Economic Success

As the utility that produces and sells more retail electricity than any other power provider in the U.S., Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) seeks out innovation in every facet of its business. Since 2006, FPL has invested more than $5 billion to make its grid stronger, smarter and more resilient.

In recent years, the utility has also sought out strategic partnerships with companies uniquely positioned to support FPL's commitment to provide low-cost, reliable and clean energy to their customers. The result of these partnerships is a smarter and more resilient grid, which in turn delivers economic development, jobs and tax revenue to the communities FPL serves.

In this mini brief, FPL shares the story of their strategic partnership with Chicago-based S&C Electric Company, and how the two organizations are collaborating to improve grid performance, create jobs and spur investment in Florida. 

How 4G LTE and 5G Will Transform Utility Operations

The next generation of utility operations and energy delivery will require robust, flexible and cost-effective communication networks – and current RF-mesh based networks aren’t up for the task. Cellular communications based on 4G LTE (Long-Term Evolution) and 5G can deliver the performance required in the era of utility decarbonization, digitalization and decentralization. 

This paper explores how cellular network solutions provide a flexible, reliable, secure and scalable open platform that can unify connectivity for utilities of all sizes and foster an ecosystem approach to innovation. Download this paper to learn how utilities can transform their business models and shrink their carbon footprints using 4G LTE and 5G cellular solutions.

In this white paper, you’ll learn about CDI’s:

  • Real-time dynamic modeling,
  • Distributed agent-based approach,
  • Single integrated solution,
  • Interactions with edge controller components,
  • Key technical components
  • And much more.

Renewable Energy Financing Trends: The Year Ahead

One year ago few could have predicted that 2020 would be so completely defined by the global coronavirus pandemic, which seismically disrupted how people live, work and learn.

Despite these challenges, the clean energy industry has been strikingly resilient. Global solar installations are up 5% since 2019, and energy storage installations in Q3 2020 were an astonishing 373% higher than that same period the year before. Likewise, wind energy had a record-setting Q3 for new installations, quickly recovering from an earlier decline in March.

There's no doubt that the year ahead will likewise be full of opportunities for renewables. In this white paper, CohnReznick and CohnReznick Capital take a closer look at the issues and trends impacting clean energy in the U.S. over the short and long term, including:

  • The impact of the 2020 U.S. election
  • Corporate demand for clean energy
  • The tax equity landscape
  • Trends to look for in 2021
