Distribution automation (DA) can achieve substantial impacts—such as reduced line loss, optimal energy use and deferred capital expenses—as utilities modernize their grid infrastructure. DA requires an ecosystem of technologies to fully achieve these benefits, and but utilities have yet to build out this ecosystem. What are the drivers behind distribution automation today? How do utilities expect their distribution automation investments to change in the years ahead? This research considers:

  • The current state and future vision of DA for utilities
  • DA technologies needed to build the DA ecosystem and best leverage its benefits.
  • The steps required for utilities to build a DA ecosystem
