ABB is launching a series of free educational webinars this fall around the theme of smart grid. In particular, the webinars will examine how the next big investment in smart grid, distribution grid management, is impacting several key industry issues that utilities are currently dealing with such as asset health management and storm recovery.

ABB Vice President of Smart Grids for North America, Gary Rackliffe, as well as other utility, industry and ABB experts, will share their insights and first-hand experiences in implementing the newest distribution grid management technologies. Two of the webinars begin this week. All will be available for viewing later upon registration.
