The CLNR project is trialing a range of innovative network technologies including electric energy storage. We have installed six energy storage batteries of varying sizes, at strategic points on the Northern Powergrid electricity distribution network, watch a time lapse video showing the work that went into installing our largest 2.5WVa/5MWH battery at Rise Carr in Darlington.
Con Edison continues to develop technology to keep pedestrians and pets safe from contact voltage. Company crews now use hand-held, directional electric-field sensors to zero in on objects that are energized. Con Edison crews investigating contact voltage reports sweep the device from side to side until the lights on the device glow bright red. The lights indicate the device is near an energized streetlight, sidewalk grating, fence or other object. Con Edison developed the technology with the Electric Power Research Institute, a leader in researching the delivery of electricity.
