The power consumption patterns have witnessed a massive shift due to the emergence of energy trends like usage of smart meters and renewable energy sources. This has in turn impacted the traditional transmission and distribution (T&D) ecosystem as well. Today, given the impact that weather phenomena such as hurricanes and floods, it is evident that power-related infrastructure needs a robust strategy to safeguard the power and utility assets, be it the grids or T&D infrastructure.
To circumvent these obstacles and alleviate the growing stress on the T&D infrastructures, AI, IoT, and analytics technologies are proving to be extremely effective and have become pivotal in transforming the landscape and solving pertinent issues affecting the utilities realm. For instance, AI and analytics can be used to perform life assessment and extension, risk management, and advanced diagnostics of a T&D infrastructure, and IoT technology can be used to enhance utilization of remote-controlled devices throughout T&D systems.
In today’s digital ecosystem, therefore, it has become critical for CIOs to choose proper technology and select best vendors that are at the forefront of efficiently tackling the challenges across the transmission and distribution realm. To help CIOs negotiate in this burgeoning T&D landscape, a distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts along with Utilities Tech Outlook’s editorial board have reviewed the top transmission and distribution solution providers and shortlisted the ones spearheading the charge toward fulfilling the urgent demands of the industry. The listing offers a look at how these solutions are put to use, thereby enabling business leaders to gain a comprehensive knowledge as to how they can strategize growth.
