A Con Edison researcher from Pelham Manor has won a prestigious industry award for his work on a project to make the delivery of electricity more reliable.
Matt Walther was named a winner of the Technology Transfer Award from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), a national energy research organization. It is the third time that Walther, section manager in Sub-station Operations, has won a Technology Transfer Award.
This time, Walther was honored for work on the development of an automated system that gathers and analyzes data from transmission transformers. Once the system is fully developed and deployed, planners will be able to use the information to make decisions on system maintenance, resulting in improved reliability and lower costs.
Walther, who has worked for Con Edison since 1993, was one of eight Con Edison researchers to win a Technology Transfer Award this year.
“We are in a constant and relentless search for technology and methods that can improve our service,” said Craig Ivey, the president of Con Edison. “The men and women of Con Edison are proud to see eight members of our team recognized for research that will benefit the New Yorkers we feel privileged to serve.”
