Duke Energy recognized as cutting-edge firm in grid technology transformation

Duke Energy was recently named to Greentech Media's Grid Edge 20 for its efforts in grid-edge technology transformation.

"At Duke Energy, we continue to promote innovation as a way to make our operations more efficient - and our customers more satisfied," Emerging Technology and Transmission Affairs Vice President Caren Anders said. "We are honored with this recognition."

Duke team members are currently working on a number of emerging technology projects including energy storage, microgrids and making grids operate with fewer proprietary protocols, and more open standards.

"The Grid Edge 20 is an annual benchmark for our industry,"  Grid Edge at Greentech Media Director Steve Propper said. "This year's group is made up of technology vendors making the greatest impact on the market in terms of deploying disruptive solutions commercially. It also includes utilities making smart investments to optimize their distribution network architecture and prepare for the future architecture of the grid."

Duke Energy will launch a testing facility this year in Gaston County, North Carolina.
