dvancement and innovation across the utility value chain is accelerating and providing utilities with significant opportunities to:
- Drive enhanced customer service
- Improve operational efficiency
- Respond to the disruption caused by increased distributed energy and renewable resources
- Deploy more resilient and intelligent distribution and transmission grids
These changes are both evolutionary and revolutionary in that new options for traditional utility assets such as distribution automation devices or smart meters are now coupled with emerging options for edge communications, grid visibility, and data analytics, in a broader strategic grid modernization context.
