President Obama’s State of the Union address last week set the tone for an ambitious second term. In the speech the President committed to push for modernizing the United States energy infrastructure, helping to deliver a clean energy future and safeguarding the environment for future generations.
According to the President's address, the United States can look forward to seeing more wind and solar projects over the next four years in conjunction with other clean energy projects. This creates a need for new transmission infrastructure and a dire need to update existing systems to be a part of the forthcoming smart grid. So, for the power industry, the next decade is going to be a massive undertaking.
In taking on this challenge, not only will energy companies need to modernize their power generation but also their transmission infrastructure with new lines and smart grids. This creates a need for a technology that can keep up with the task and the pace of what is likely to be a long stretch of negotiations for right of way and infrastructure contracts and paperwork. Fortunately, there is a solution.
geoAMPS is ready to help energy companies with this great endeavor. With right of way and infrastructure tracking software, new wind and solar installations can be installed quickly and efficiently with real-time tracking. No more searching for lost documents and wondering about the status of a project. New transmission lines, substations and other power infrastructure can be built faster, safer and more efficiently. In doing so, many right of way contracts, leases and other documentation will need to be tracked, distributed and stored during planning, construction and operation, all of which geoAMPS Web-based and mobile systems can handle with ease.
