Utilities have entered a new era of change and uncertainty. Security threats are growing, regulations are tightening, and new technologies—from smart meters to microgrids—are disrupting longstanding business models. The growing adoption of renewables has also challenged utilities to adapt by integrating these distributed energy resources into the grid. Recent security incidents—both cyber and physical—have sent shock waves through the industry yet most utilities have a long way to go to protect their grids. To thrive in the new era, strategy-minded utilities are increasingly planning for a future based on smart grid applications providing system interoperability and enabling a spectrum of new applications that improve grid safety, security and reliability. The challenges for utilities are huge, but so are the opportunities. This session will provide you with new insights and real-life examples of what's possible for the new digital utility.
