The modernization of the distribution grid has been progressing at various rates at different electric utilities throughout North America. This project will survey a number of utilities and gather information on the progress they have made in modernizing their distribution grid. The project will focus on areas of implementation that were successful as well as areas of implementation that could have been improved. The project will also analyze the data received from the survey and highlight common practices, lessons learned, and potential areas for further study.
