Resiliency in a Time of Crisis

CEM Engineers, Mike Lewis and Bob Hebner, published an article in the May 2020 special issue of the IEEE Smart Grid eNewsletter entitled, “Pandemic Implications on Power Systems”.

Our approach involves participation in a continuum of research projects, each contributing to our knowledge base and core competencies while leveraging the results and experiences gained in previous projects. We intend to always be on the forefront of the new age of electrification by applying our fundamental understanding of the technologies involved to an increasing number of novel application areas.
