About this talk
Recent acts of vandalism targeted at Duke Energy’s substations have affected over 36,000 customers in Moore County, NC, leaving people literally in the dark – curfews in place and schools unable to function among other inconveniences. This only drives home the need to monitor and protect critical infrastructures that power up and provide energy to millions of people. Coupled with the focus on Grid Modernization, Energy Transition to Renewables, and striving for faster Decarbonization, the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity to millions of customers is an enormous task that requires on-point efficiencies, ubiquitous security, worker safety standards, and data and knowledge management. To continuously deliver electricity successfully and safely at good rates, Utilities must make use of emerging technologies such as computer vision, analytics and AI to increase efficiency, maintain operations, and improve the safety and security of critical assets.In today’s presentation, we will explain how you can successfully leverage a new digital technology infrastructure to deliver on five key business outcome areas:
- Increased Operational Efficiencies: Leverage all data that you are generating to deliver high-quality services, improve resource allocation and impact M&O costs.
- Optimized Safety and Security: Connect to a central station monitoring provider like Convergint to ensure that all alerts are investigated to provide a safer, more real-time aware environment.
- Managed Service Delivery: Guarantee fixed costs with trustworthy service for the term of the contract.
- New Revenue Opportunities: Lock in fixed costs through managed services to operationalize your solution infrastructure costs and unlock more monetization opportunities from your data with actionable insights.
