Reliability. Resiliency. Recovery.
Let’s challenge the way we think about power infrastructure decisions. PDi2’s purpose is to drive maximum power grid resiliency and reliability at the lowest life-cycle cost. We gather and disseminate information to help determine which power delivery solutions—overhead or underground—to employ.
Undergrounding in Resilience
Read the new Public Utilities Fortnightly Special Report: “The Role of Undergrounding in Electricity System Resilience.”
Utilities are increasingly undergrounding. Innovation has decreased its costs. Increased its reliability. Extended service life.
Drill down on these developments in undergrounding.
PDi2 aims to be a clearinghouse of information that helps inform how the power industry makes power infrastructure decisions. Our research comprises both original projects commissioned by PDi2 and a resource library compiled from secondary research including utility project case studies and the hottest topics that impact the industry.
Let’s Challenge How We Think
Weather events. Security. Long-term reliability. Operations and maintenance costs over the life a system. When it comes to considerations for building or rehabilitating power infrastructure, the environment is right for a change in philosophy. Let’s reconsider today’s view where initial investment cost is a core driver.
We will engage in activity that considers quantifiable factors that take into account the longer-term effects on society, our customers, our environment and our businesses. Our goal is to put all the facts on the table by working with our distinguished members and their networks to:
- Aggregate experience
- Collect current data and information
- Sponsor new research to answer tough questions with facts about both overhead and underground power delivery infrastructure
PDi2 on LinkedIn
Strong members create the broadest impact. PDi2 is committed to becoming a trusted reference for all stakeholders within the electric power value chain, including design engineers, EPCs, utilities, utility commissions or regulators and consumers. We are looking for members within that sphere of influence and we’d be glad to work with your company.
We welcome diverse expertise. PDi2 welcomes new member organizations. Our focus is to become a working group that actively engages with all levels of membership and outside resources to develop data models that support our mission – and then communicate the results to help the industry make objective decisions about construction options for power infrastructure.
