POWERGRID - Introduction
Do you REALLY understand how our nation's electrical grid works? Producer Josh Kurz explain today's power grid, some of its biggest problems, and how smart grid technology could help. Check out BURN's special "The Switch" - the story of our national grid. http://burnanenergyjournal.com/the-switch/
Robert Llewellyn visits the National Grid to find out what it's all about! LIKE Fully Charged on Facebook @ http://www.fb.me/FullyChargedShow Fully Charged Podcast on iTunes @ http://bit.ly/fullchargediTunes The National Grid is a high-voltage electric power transmission network, connecting power stations and 340+ substations ensuring supply and demand is in the balance. Nigel Williams speaks to Robert Llewellyn about how the National Grid works in Great Britain, and what challenges it faces with the rapidly changing world. Fully Charged is an online show hosted by Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf, Scrapheap Challenge, Carpool), sponsored by British Gas: Looking After Your World. During this series, Robert will discuss why we need to change how we think about energy consumption now. He will b...

Want to know more about these tunnels? Go watch Geoff Marshall's video over at Londonist! https://youtu.be/qSzxTgDq3hM -- and thanks to the National Grid for letting me film down in the London Power Tunnels: this isn't a sponsored video, although they did go out of their way to show Geoff and me around! http://londonpowertunnels.co.uk - http://nationalgrid.com Back in the 1920s, electricity was generated by hundreds of small companies in towns and cities across the country. They were all different and mostly incompatible: London alone had 24 voltages and 10 frequencies. How did we get from there to the billion-pound tunnel projects of today?

A power company in the Midwest hired a group of white hat hackers known as RedTeam Security to test its defenses. We followed them around for 3 days, as they attempted to break into buildings and hack into its network, with the goal of gaining full access. And it was all much easier than you might think. Based on our experiences, it would seem that power companies need to step up their game in the fight against cyber attackers or it could be "lights out."

The National Grid has been busy building 32km of new tunnels and infrastructure under London carrying high voltage power cables. We went and had a look along with the marvellous Tom Scott - who's also made a video over at https://www.youtube.com/user/enyay and has many more delightfully insightful, geeky and interesting videos over on his channel - go have a look!

Megastructures - Power Grid - BBC National Geographic Documentary. Power Grid is the English-language edition of the multiplayer German-style board game Funkenschlag (in its second incarnation) designed by Friedemann Friese and first published in 2004. Power Grid is published by Rio Grande Games. In the game, each player represents a company that owns power plants and tries to supply electricity to cities. Over the course of the game, the players will bid on power plants and buy resources to produce electricity to provide power to the growing number of cities in their expanding network.

With over 160,000 miles of transmission lines, and redundancy throughout the system, the U.S. power grid was designed to handle natural and man-made disasters, as well as local fluctuations in consumption. How does it handle the job of powering the U.S.?
