Existing utility-managed centralized grid
  • One-way communication infrastructure, built for centralized generation and distribution
  • Insufficient data capabilities, resulting in suboptimal energy distribution
  • Rigid, closed system that cannot be modified while in operation
  • Poor energy security and heightened grid vulnerability amplified by increasing voltage demands from electrification
Existing utility-managed centralized grid
  • Multi-directional communication, built to accommodate both centralized and decentralized generation
  • Dynamic load and generation balancing powered by high-bandwidth, real-time energy data, energy analytics, and predictive models
  • Open system accessible by third parties to modify the functionality of the grid to enable grid resilience
  • Highest level of security and grid resiliency without the dependence on third-party communication networks

Broadband over power lines (BPL) is a massive improvement over NB-PLC technology, and NB-PLC for energy sector will be replaced by BPL through the natural upgrade cycle

Three pie charts showing the market percentage of NB-PLC from 2018-2022
  • NB-PLC is the preferred technology for many global markets
  • Major utility alliances are standardizing the future generation of PLC technologies based on broadband over power lines
  • Broadband over power lines (BPL) enabled solutions represent the next generation in PLC technology and NB units will be replaced by BPL units throughout the natural upgrade cycle

Regulatory requirements are forcing utilities to implement grid modernization solutions such as Corinex BPL

  • Sets the framework and objectives for the electricity market to modernize the grid
  • Mandates grid upgrades to accommodate decentralized generation
  • Requires implementation of smart metering, demand response systems and integration of DERs
  • Aims to facilitate the integration of renewable resources into the EU’s power grid
  • “Digital twin” of the electric grid announced implying mass digitalization requirements
  • Intention to enact an international data sharing framework for participation in DERs
  • Aims to promote competition, enhance grid reliability, and support the growth of clean energy resources
  • Removes barriers and enable greater integration of DERs into the grid
  • required to revise their market rules and tariffs to facilitate the participation of DERs in the wholesale electricity markets

Every utility will need broadband over power lines

New demands on the grid: Distributed generation, EVs, and storage require high bandwidth and intelligence for grid digitalization
Regulatory mandates to provide detailed, real-time information to prosumers
Industry standards: In 2022, PRIME Alliance standardized BPL for deployment based on ITU's protocol
Advantages of broadband over power lines: High-speed communication, edge computing, security, network coverage, and lower cost, in one already proven integrated solution
