ABOUT US

Athena Power is a smart-sensing & data analytics company focused on critical power infrastructure modernization. The company manufactures low-cost, high functionality solutions for companies looking to improve their reliability, resiliency, and overall monitoring capability of their assets.

Athena Power is an engineering-driven company founded in Washington D.C./Baltimore and is 100% employee-owned and operated.

SOLUTION

Problem:
Continuous monitoring of underground (subsurface and padmount) assets for reliability improvement has traditionally been uneconomical and challenging for widespread adoption by utilities. Additionally, significant time is spent trying to find issues with underground power failures (such as underground faults). Current methodologies in finding underground power failures include ‘Thumping’ and ‘Sectionalizing’ the grid. These procedures are crude, expensive, time intensive, and further reduce long-term reliability.

Solution:
Athena Power developed and currently manufacturers low-cost/high functionality sensor solutions that are customizable to continually monitor underground assets. Athena’s solution is wireless, self-powered, and uses sophisticated algorithms to locate issues (such as UG faults) while providing a continuous stream of real-time data and analytics to improve operational intelligence.

Athena Power’s solution is oriented around open-architecture & standards. Our products are interoperable with various industry platforms to drive innovation and lower-costs for our customers.

APPLICATIONS

Our Products are Designed, Developed, Coded, and Manufactured in the USA.

  • Reliability & Resiliency

  • Distributed Generation / Renewable Energy Integration

  • Power Quality Analysis

  • Predicative Analytics

Athena Power to Lead Smartgrid Roundtable at Global American Business Institute (GABI)

In partnership with the Korea Institute of Energy Research (KIER), and the Global America Business Institute (GABI), Athena Power will be leading a roundtable on “The Importance of Grid Infrastructure Modernization and Resilience: Opportunities under the Trump Administration” on Wednesday, April 19th, 2017 from noon to 1:00 p.m. Lunch will be served.

Where: 1001 Connecticut 2nd Floor Conference Room (1001 Connecticut Avenue NW, Suite 230, Washington, DC 20036)

The U.S. electric grid is an essential and central piece of the country’s critical infrastructure through its crucial role in distributing reliable power to residences, workplaces, public spaces, health and safety facilities, and factories throughout the nation. However, the grid was designed and built around technologies and business models that are changing. Modernizing the grid is vital for further integration of distributed energy resources and the development of more efficient wholesale markets, which will continue to lower electricity costs and fuel U.S. competitiveness. Grid modernization will also bolster reliability by making the grid more secure and resilient to cyber-attacks, severe weather events, and aging. Power outages cost the U.S. billions of dollars of economic activity annually, and investing in the country’s aging grid infrastructure will strengthen the country’s productivity and quality of life.
