Storm Impact Analytics for Utilities

12/05/2016

In recent years, increasingly volatile and extreme weather events have significantly impacted the operations and bottom lines of many utilities. Contributing to the problem are obsolete grid assets and a lack of automation, both of which can make it difficult to predict and prepare for the impact of weather threats.

Adding to the pressure, social media puts utilities at an increased risk for public scrutiny if unhappy customers complain openly about poor outage response times. In addition, there is greater regulatory and political scrutiny over outages.
