The Modern Standard

It’s no secret that much of America’s grid is aging and desperately outdated. Thanks to rapid advancements in technology, however, these aging facilities are given new life and are supported in innovative ways that are quickly bringing facilities into the modern era of power. At NEI, we’ve been working with our clients to solve these problems for years, and our field-tested experience is prevalent in every job we take on. Our expertise in grid modernization includes microgrid projects, automation and smart-grid experience, and physical and cyber security.

In a world where power is often taken for granted, now is the time to ensure your facilities are ready to face the challenges of the 21st century. Not only is the demand for power greater than ever, so too is the reality that an aging infrastructure leaves facilities and their operations vulnerable. When you partner with NEI Electric Power Engineering to modernize your grid operations, you’re gaining a team of professionals who understand the nuances of older facilities and who are armed with best practices to bring the modern grid to your doorstep.

Physical & Cybersecurity

The threat of attack, either physical or cyber, is every operator’s worst nightmare. Smart grids, microgrids, AMI metering, and automation all require thoughtfully networked equipment. Understanding how each part of the grid and automation work in concert with one another is paramount in order to ensure the safety and security of your people and your facility.

Modernizing the grid is no longer a question of “If,” but “When.” Our past clients who have sought our expertise in grid modernization are already reaping the benefits that come with a state-of-the-art, integrated infrastructure.
