One of the main advantages of smart grid is that it enables participation of customers in power generation and also facilitates two way power flow instead of the traditional single directional flow of power. While energy storage and renewable sources have a prominent role to play, they have to be integrated properly to prevent voltage and frequency fluctuation. Development of standards is also a key trending area in the smart grid sector. European research institutes are involved in developing solutions related to control and communications along with their respective standards. Research toward cyber security is also gaining attention from governments and research institutes alike. Asia-Pacific has been actively seeking new strategies to address the ever rising demand for electricity and by means of which, smart grid deployment has moved into the spotlight.

Proppants are solid materials, which are pumped in the well along with fracturing fluids that facilitate uniform distribution and placement of the proppants in the open fracture. This forms a mesh-like structure with pores forming flow paths that conduct flow of fluid from the reservoir to the well. With increasing need to optimize hydraulic fracking operations, operators are forced to ensure that the choice of proppant is a best-fit solution to withstand reservoir conditions, enhance conductivity, and improve overall well performance. Traditional proppants have faced various concerns with regard to high proppant density, inaccurate placement, and consolidation to form a stable proppant pack capable of maintaining the flow conductivity at all operating reservoir conditions. In this issue of the Oil and Gas TOE, we profile advances in proppant technology that have enabled operators to realize significant productivity improvement and cost reduction.
