A perfect example of disruptive innovation, the E3X® Robot System was originally piloted in partnership with Exelon last spring on close to a mile of overhead power lines on the ComEd system in northern Illinois. The robot system enhances energy transmission efficiency, safety and sustainability. This groundbreaking robotic technology applies heat-dissipating E3X® coating to existing power lines to reduce power grid congestion. It creates a breakthrough grid-enhancing solution without the need to build new transmission lines, unlocking capacity by 15-25 percent for utilities.

“This award proves that innovative and breakthrough technologies, like our E3X® grid enhancing robot system, are solving specific business needs and enhancing shared sustainability goals,” said Andrea Pirondini, CEO of Prysmian Group North America. “We pride ourselves on working closely with our customers to develop products and solutions that will enable the modernization of the U.S. energy grid and that energy transition”.

The E3X® Robot System was chosen as the 2022 Gold award winner within the energy and power supply category by a panel of over 3,000 senior business executives and academics from around the world, including hundreds of past Edison Award winners. The revolutionary system was selected for its advanced electronics, imaging capabilities and artificial intelligence, which can withstand extreme voltages, operate in severe weather conditions, and navigate slope angles. It can also be deployed without deenergizing that portion of the power grid, and it’s the only technology to enhance the capacity of the existing conductor.

“A more efficient grid will help us build a cleaner-powered future for our customers and communities and accelerate the transition to sustainable energy sources,” said Terence Donnelly, President and COO of ComEd, an Exelon company. “We are proud to have partnered with Prysmian Group to drive innovation and set new standards for the delivery of safe, clean and cost-effective power.

Named after inventor Thomas Edison, the Edison Awards have been recognizing and honoring the best in innovation and innovators across the globe since 1987. Like the famous inventor, the awards personify the persistence, excellence and human drive for innovation, creativity and ingenuity.
