In May 2020, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) took action to make six MHz of low-band spectrum available for the development of critical wireless broadband technologies and services. This long-awaited proposal aims to modernize the 900 MHz spectrum band so utilities can deploy private, secure LTE networks across their infrastructure to enhance grid cybersecurity and modernize the aging power grid.

Contractors and their utility partners must deal with the cybersecurity challenges, considering the remote nature of planning work in this new era. Beyond COVID-19, EPCs and utilities are navigating new paths and new types of generation projects. How do RFPs for utility-scale wind and energy storage projects address gaps between full and partial wrap? Summer weather-fire dangers? What are key differences between EPC for renewables vs. conventional thermal plants? And, with the former, how do contractors and project leaders handle reverse flow issues?

The worlds of engineering technology (ET), information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) are quickly drawing closer. With open, connected data environments, digital twins are accelerating product and process development, optimizing performance, and enabling predictive maintenance. Every infrastructure segment is advancing digitally, on project sites, in smart buildings and plants and in utilities and cities. Companies are using digital twins in a number of industries, making it easier to design and operate complex products and processes. And as each utility’s digital strategy evolves, digital twins can become a real and executable thing.
