What if there was a way to accurately predict the impact of severe weather events on customers and network assets? Join us to find out how to deliver reliable, affordable, predictable power.​

Grid at the edge of the storm

Utilities have made major investments in improving the outage response process by expanding beyond traditional OMS functions to a fully integrated ADMS, adding mobility and damage assessment.  What if there was a way to accurately predict the impact of severe weather events on customers and network assets? By making data driven decisions in advance of severe weather events, utilities can improve mobilization of resources to the affected areas.
 
Traditional approaches for T&D asset management include periodic visual inspections and the replacement of assets based on fixed cycles based on age. These processes are not necessarily efficient or optimal all the time, leading to system inefficiencies and costly O&M investments. Today, new technology, surveying methods, and AI-enabled data management solutions are available that can improve reliability, safety, costs, and service.
 
DERs are growing at a very fast pace. While bringing innovative electrification and energy efficiency services to end-users, they jeopardize every grid operation paradigm for Utilities. Allowing more DERs to connect requires grid observability and controllability down to the lowest consumer level -where traditional SCADA communications are not affordable.
 
Join this session to learn how to leverage these solutions to improve your operations and customer service.
