The Energy Transition: Gearing Up for the Smarter Grid – Part 3

IoT for Utility and Industrial Power Grids: Where is the value?

Now Available On Demand!

IoT is now part of the utility’s vocabulary. The good news is that the cost of devices and deployment has dropped. Connected devices on the distribution grid – think digital substations, intelligent transformer stations, smart chargers and more – enable informed actions through full data and analytics. Also, good news – companies have learned the hard lessons from the early days of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI). It is critical to fully explore IoT data and understand the potential for automation that IoT systems provide for power grids operated by utilities or industrial facilities. There are lots of possible use cases such as grid transparency, predictive maintenance, outage prediction, power quality monitoring, and many more.

What you will learn:

  • What use cases for IoT data and analytics are delivering value to public and industrial power grids?
  • What must be in place to ensure successful outcomes and data security?
  • What are the first steps?

There will be opportunities for audience interaction during the webinar.
