The utilities and energy industry is undergoing unprecedented change. As major technology, market and policy changes continue to invite digitization and automation, digital transformation is needed across operations and business models if organizations are to thrive and fully benefit from Industry 4.0.
To help providers increase profit margins and evolve with the industry, WWT focuses our digital transformation efforts on four frontiers:
The utility system overlaying our electric grid operates much like the human nervous system. Various field assets, line sensors, fault locators, IEDs and other IoT sensors operate as the system’s nerves to transport real-time telemetry and sensory data. Integrated telecom networks serve as the data pathways.
To successfully navigate this system, all incoming data should be administered for analytics, automation and planning. Distributed intelligence can enable decisions at the edge with low-latency, removing the need to travel back to a centralized processing facility. Less time-sensitive data can then be sent to grid control centers for processing.
Inform customers about real-time power consumption metrics and service disruption.
Digitize manuals, automate safety briefings and streamline compliance reporting.
Harness sensor data to extend the life of grid assets and prepare for disruptive events.
Leverage your network for broadband internet delivery, 5G backhaul and smart city support.
Digitally instrument and automate data to accommodate changing energy sources.
Automate IT processes to accelerate service delivery from months to minutes.
Mature existing security controls to protect an expanding attack surface.
Select, manage and govern sensors for condition-based maintenance.
