Hi neighbours,

Do you sometimes drive a few kms over the speed limit? Road police have scrapped their speed buffer on Kiwi roads in favour of a no tolerance approach.

All motorists edging over the limit at any time of the year can now expect to be pulled over and possibly fined, national road policing manager Acting Superintendent Gini Welch confirmed on Friday.

It brings an end to a long-standing convention that law enforcement would let minor speeding breaches slide.


“We don’t have a threshold,” Welch told Stuff, “we don’t have anything other than the speed limit.

Previously, besides zero tolerance long weekends, it was understood police could exercise discretion up to 10kmh over the speed limit.

The Advanced Smart Grid: Edge Power Driving Sustainability

by Andres Carvallo, John Cooper

Hardback, 262 pages

2nd edition, 2015

The authors look past the current climate of activity, much of it initially fueled with government grants, to a phase where business drivers alone dictate what gets deployed next.

Placing emphasis on practical "how-to" guidance, this cutting-edge resource provides you with a first-hand, insider’s perspective on the advent and evolution of smart grids in the 21st century (smart grid 1.0). You gain a thorough understanding of the building blocks that comprise basic smart grids, including power plant, transmission substation, distribution, and meter automation.

Moreover, this forward-looking volume explores the next step of this technology’s evolution. It provides a detailed explanation of how an advanced smart grid incorporates demand response with smart appliances and management mechanisms for distributed generation, energy storage, and electric vehicles. The Advanced Smart Grid uses the design and construction of the first citywide smart grid in the US as a case study, sharing the many successes and lessons learned.

You gain working knowledge of successful tools and best practices that are needed to overcome diverse technological and organisational challenges as you strive to build a next-generation advanced smart grid (smart grid 2.0). Additionally, this unique book offers a glimpse at the future with interconnected advanced smart grids and a redesigned energy ecosystem (smart grid 3.0).
