Webinar Summary

Though delivering electricity for decades utilities can face unprecedented challenges, including extreme weather conditions, growing energy demand, aging infrastructures and workforces, new regulatory requirements, as well as growing customer-service expectations. In a time of crisis, the ability to restore electricity faster and more efficiently to customers is invaluable. During natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy in the U.S. last year, even utilities with only moderately complete advanced grid implementations improved and streamlined outage management. Fortunately, power outage and asset management solutions gave utilities greater visibility into impacted areas.

Utilities are under extreme pressure to fend off power outages, deliver more with less, and constantly innovate. Ventyx with organizations SCE and Zpryme will provide an in-depth look on how next-generation power outage and asset management solutions are not only shaping the energy industry, but also impacting the customers utilities serve.
