Power Grid

Power, Connect, Optimize for the Grid of the Future

To achieve shared visions of energy security and decarbonization, the aging grid is transforming. As energy stewards, utilities are taking measures to invest and modernize this critical infrastructure. Black & Veatch makes sure existing infrastructure is used to its full potential, investments are deployed effectively, and systems are future-proof – designed and built for good.

We deliver an integrated, system-wide solution that encompasses transmission, distribution and the communications and automation to connect, visualize and optimize the grid. By helping utilities plan, design and build an intelligent, secure and resilient grid, reducing grid failures and enabling diverse, renewable generation, we’re preparing utilities and their customers for long-term, sustainable growth.

Access to consistent, always-on power is becoming a major success factor for our clients. Whether for a data center, industrial complex, or an EV fleet charging hub, we design and build on-site power infrastructure and grid interconnections to offer greater control over your power usage.
