Schneider Electric announced a long-term partnership with the University of Connecticut (UConn) and Eversource Energy to combine the companies’ storm outage prediction technology to create a single, more precise and accurate model. UConn’s analytics model will be integrated into Schneider’s WeatherSentry Online (WSO) platform, enabling utilities to better understand the expected impacts of storms on their utility infrastructure and to make smarter decisions in preparing for storms to minimize restoration time, cost and impacts to customers.

The project will be housed at the Eversource Energy Center on the UConn campus. The Center is a partnership between the university and Eversource to develop new approaches for delivering reliable power and responding to severe weather and security events.

Becoming a member of the partnership, Schneider Electric will apply its top-rated weather technology, weather data and expertise in developing scalable solutions for utilities globally. With this new project, Schneider and Eversource will expand upon their long-term relationship in supporting storm preparation efforts by combining UConn’s Outage Prediction Model with Schneider’s WSO platform and other weather services.

In addition to providing new, marketable technology, the announced partnership provides new opportunities for UConn students and researchers interested in the meteorological sciences and utilities management.
