Renewable energy is increasingly affordable, good for the environment and here to stay. The problem is that the nation's electrical grid isn't ready for it. The grid was not built for the kind of fluctuating supply that comes from distributed energy generation. In addition to the increased volatility associated with distributed energy resources, utilities are confronted with increased demands on the grid from electrification and digitization of the economy. Customer expectations for consumer-grade digital experiences and increased emphasis on safety and reliability are only increasing.

Our industry has made numerous technological advances designed to protect homeowners, businesses and electrical workers. That makes every fatal electrocution in the home all the more distressing. Between 2010 and 2013, the U.S. saw an estimated average of 48 electrocution fatalities associated with consumer products per year, with large and small electric appliances chief among them1. Tragedies like these can be avoided, especially when the ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) technologies needed to prevent dangerous events are readily available. As the principle NEMA representative at the National Electrical Code (NEC) Code-Making Panel Two, I saw public input asking for increased GFCI protection for the home during the 2017 code cycle. The code panel expanded the GFCI requirement for facilities other than dwelling units as part of section NEC 210.8(B). However, residential standards improvements were sidelined.

Code updates happen for one main reason: safety improvement. NEC (National Electrical Code) Article 408.3 helps take electrical safety for service entrance panels to a new level. The code, updated in 2017, includes provisions to provide shock protection via panelboard barriers. The barriers protect from energized conductors on the line terminals of the main overcurrent protection device (OCPD) in a panelboard. When the main circuit breaker in a panel is turned off, line side terminals and conductors remain energized from upstream via the utility or another panelboard. With these barriers in place and the main OCPD turned off, installers are better protected when pulling wires into the panelboard. Today, all panelboards are shipped with shock-protective barriers. However, barriers are new to installation procedures, so contractors may not recognize them and accidentally throw them out—easily and often.

If not, you are increasing the risk for costly, unplanned downtime. However, despite the importance of having a reliable flow of electricity, over half of building owners rely on reactive maintenance programs to care for their equipment. This means they wait until equipment fails completely before initiating corrective action, which is typically 3-4 times more costly than taking preventive measures. A good first step to go from being reactive to proactive is having a power system assessment performed to determine the current state and reliability of your electrical system. For more information on Power System Assessments, download our white paper, "Assessing the Health of a Facility's Electrical Power Distribution System".

Could you do more for worker safety? Protective gear alone can't prevent arc flash injury. In fact, according to NFPA 70E, injuries sustained during an arc ?ash event would be reduced and survivable due to arc-rated PPE. Complying with the safe work practices required by NFPA 70E and implementing arc flash mitigation strategies through engineering controls will enhance workplace safety for employees and lower financial risk for your company. Read the white paper, "Mitigating Arc Flash Hazards", for more information.

Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system. This paper explains how to reduce TCO with a limited investment focused on three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.

Keeping aging switchgear performing at optimum performance levels can be challenging. When it comes to the reliability of an electrical distribution system, it’s not a question of if a system component will malfunction, but when. Electrical equipment ultimately degrades and reaches the end of its useful life, no matter how much maintenance is performed. And, with the advancements in the design of the new circuit breakers, those with older technology are no longer considered sustainable solutions. Plant managers and engineers must ensure continuity of operations and develop a plan to replace or upgrade aging switchgear. Facilities without a properly-implemented strategy put operations at risk that could lead to safety issues, equipment damage and/or downtime.
