S&C Electric Company, a global leader in smart grids and renewable energy integration, today announces an expansion of its UK-based Power Systems Services operation. Three new engineers have joined S&C's European team, bringing with them a combined 50 years worth of experience in utility transmission and distribution systems, smart grids, and renewable energy integration.
