The AI and ML-enabled model doesn’t require utilities to reinvent the wheel. Instead, a cloud-based platform provides a framework for inputting, integrating, processing, optimizing, contextualizing, and analyzing data already in the enterprise as well as the data coming in from new technology. With greater transparency into the entire network, the utility can do better hotspot detection, land surveying, emergency response, and network inventory too.
All of this supports improved safety and reliability. The technology can reduce the number of times staff have to risk hazardous conditions and improve the overall inspection process. Plus, with predictive analytics, people are given an improved decision-making framework.
Getting Better and Smarter with Digital
AI can provide value quickly; however, a key starting point is determining the maturity level of your data capture. Then, in partnership with a strategic partner like GE Digital Grid, we’ll need to understand how the utility's’ data is optimized to drive different value streams and what strategies the utility has in place to process the data and baseline the AI.
Machine learning technology is built to always be learning and improving. This is a journey. GE Digital Grid can help. Our team is industry recognized. GE Digital won a 2021 Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Award for Global Transmission & Distribution Grid Analytics Product Leadership. This award recognized our investment in “supporting customers with industry leading solutions to accelerate the Energy Transition while making the electric grid more secure and resilient.”
