Gain visibility and control

In the increasingly dynamic and evolving world of the electric utility, distribution grid operators are facing rising uncertainty due to changing business and regulatory models coupled with an ongoing increase in grid complexity. This complexity has allowed software solutions to take advantage of more operational levers, equipment functionality, general data, and telemetry.


With converging OT and IT, utilities need an ADMS software solution offering greater visibility and control to the utility—one that will connect and orchestrate, delivering network-level optimization. GE has the proven and solid foundation-enabling utilities to solve these challenges with scalable and high-performing distribution power applications that have gone well beyond the pilot stage and are in production worldwide. In addition, where many legacy systems are challenged to integrate distributed energy resources (DERs), GE can deliver a solution today that turns the threat of DER into an opportunity.
