Strategic Undergrounding: A Panel Discussion

The cost of underground distribution is coming down. Emerging technologies and advanced construction methods make underground(UG) more safe, reliable and resilient than overhead(OH) over the life of the asset. Utilities across America are proving it with strategic undergrounding pilots and programs.

11:30 AM – 12:15 PM CT

Driving Grid Modernization through Data Transformation

Building a strategy for overall Data Transformation in Grid Modernization program is critical for the success of the program. This presentation will cover National Grid’s efforts in building the electric data platform to serve Grid Modernization goals as well as transforming data to digitize our products.

12:30 PM – 1:15 PM CT

Visibility Without Vulnerability: Strategies for Secure OT Monitoring

Proactive measures are the key to long-term grid resiliency, but to take the right proactive steps, operators need to collect and analyze data that isn’t always readily available. Asset condition and performance data is often confined to local OT networks, with limited or no connectivity to IT networks where centralized analysis and planning take place.

1:30 PM – 2:15 PM CT

Battery Storage for Energy Resilience

With recent events shining a renewed spotlight on the necessity for resilience, how is energy storage uniquely positioned to be a key component for resiliency in the electric grid? In this webinar, we will discuss what is driving the increased need for the implementation of new technologies to support and improve grid resiliency and what role storage can play to…

Outage Management – Using AI to Drive Vegetation Management and Outage Prediction Insights

The Energy, Environment & Utilities (EE&U) world faces increasing pressure to improve up-time, reduce outage duration, meet increasing consumption demands, all while lowering their carbon footprints. While a daunting to-do list, there are cost-effective solutions available that leverage AI to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and deliver on these mandates.

10:30 AM – 11:15 AM CT

Using Artificial Intelligence for Asset Management

Utilizing machine learning and AI, companies can autonomously generate an interactive visual database of utility poles and assets, create GIS mapping and conduct inspection of the overhead electric distribution system to improve reliability and asset management while lowering costs. In this session, we will discuss the benefits of utilizing an AI solution like…

1:30 PM – 2:15 PM CT

AMI for Resiliency

Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) was introduced nearly 20 years ago, a major step forward from the previous 20 years of Automated Meter Reading (AMR) that brought efficiency into the meter-to-bill process, a significant event for the times. AMI extended the operational benefits by enabling greater insight and management of devices with two-way…
