Utilities also need to adapt to the rapid changes in smart grid technology, the electricity distribution system of the future. more...-
"Security" involves protecting cyber and physical assets, as well as cultivating a culture that understands and practices sound policies. Utilities with generation and transmission assets, for instance, must meet federal requirements for critical infrastructure protection issued by the North American Electric Reliability Corp. The process is not simple or easy and, in fact, may not make your utility secure. Join this webinar to learn how to meet the NERC CIP requirements while also advancing internal security goals. more...-
Information is vital to the utility enterprise. The dawn of the smart grid era means that utilities will gain an unprecedented avalanche of data on their systems and customers. That will raise the bar on business strategy and planning. What challenges do utilities face making intelligent, disciplined use of the data - and what kind of "wins" will they achieve by making the effort? more...-
As electric utilities collect increasing amounts of data from smart devices, many find themselves data rich but information poor. They have not considered or don't yet realize it is possible to turn raw data into actionable information that can help manage and protect their sizable asset investments. more...-
The move to the smart grid results in a paradigm shift regarding data. With the smart grid, utilities are transformed from distributors of power to brokers of information that handle millions of data transactions every day. more...-
