The modern grid, powered by data analytics

This single day of high impact sessions will focus on the transformation of the modern energy grid, which increasingly relies on data analytics for efficient and reliable operations.

The digitalized utility is flooded with data from connected devices across the energy value chain. Innovation is erupting from the convergence of AI capabilities and IoT data. But are you positioned to derive ultimate value from that data? Are your asset programs cost efficient? Do your customers have a personalised experience? Can you anticipate events in the grid and mitigate their impact?
