IG­NIT­ING IN­NO­VA­TION

CEO Magazine North America - - IN DEPTH — THE AES CORPORATION -

In many places, the US power grid is more than 100 years old with lit­tle change to how it’s been man­aged since its in­cep­tion. But the smart ap­pli­ca­tion of tech­nolo­gies, al­ready val­i­dated in other sec­tors, such as drones, ro­bot­ics and ma­chine learn­ing speeds the cy­cle time to solve crit­i­cal power sys­tem prob­lems with new, bet­ter and af­ford­able so­lu­tions.

Ac­cord­ing to An­dres Gluski, AES is driven by a be­lief that the grid can be­come clean and un­break­able. In­creas­ing con­tri­bu­tions from en­ergy stor­age, re­new­ables, LNG and cleaner coal infrastructure will help to trans­form the power sys­tem, ad­vanc­ing eco­nomic and so­ci­etal progress. And by re­duc­ing hu­man ex­po­sure to the in­her­ent safety haz­ards of the elec­tric­ity in­dus­try, he sees AES as in­creas­ing the re­siliency and sta­bil­ity of the elec­tric­ity sys­tem. Ac­cord­ing to Gluski, when en­ergy be­comes an ac­tive infrastructure, it can be­come abun­dant and re­shape the way we work and live. It will take less en­ergy to pro­duce more en­ergy, cre­at­ing a con­tin­u­ous cy­cle of new en­ergy im­pact.
