On the latest episode of Modo: The Podcast, Chris Kimmett - Chief Operations Officer at Reactive Technologies joins Quentin to teach us how measuring inertia is imperative to balancing the system. During the course of the conversation, Chris and Quentin discuss:

  • The definition of inertia and what processes are implemented to measure it.
  • How the transition to greener energy production is impacting the amount of inertia on the grid and why measuring this is important.
  • Other countries' grid design and an insight as to why they developed in that way.
  • How being able to accurately measure inertia is important and what type of businesses benefit from being able to do so?
