Due to the challenges that severe weather presents, utilities need to embrace new remote sensing technology, surveying methods, and AI-enabled data management solutions that offer an upgrade path from legacy risk management programs. Florida Power and Light is driving transformational change not only at the utility but across the industry.
Listen to this webinar to hear how FPL paired with GE Digital to:
We also explore how other utilities can leverage GE’s AI-based vegetation management solution, called Visual Intelligence. We dive into the solution and explore the potential value generated by using data-driven visual images captured by many different sources (drones, fixed-wing, helicopters, satellites, humans, sensors) to drive vegetation management decisions.
Today, global T&D utilities spend millions of dollars per year on vegetation management and asset inspection programs to reduce outages, increase compliance, improve safety, and reduce the probability of catastrophic events such as wildfires or major regional outages.
Driven by Artificial Intelligence, GE’s Visual Intelligence Platform optimizes these systems and processes and provides a holistic picture of the grid to help reduce the cost and complexity associated with traditional inspection approaches, while improving risk management and productivity.
