Utility Operations and Technology: Navigating a Transformative Landscape
The move to incorporate clean energy into the electric system is driving transformation of utilities, their assets, and their relationships with customers. The use of natural gas is changing to support different needs at the wholesale level, and local gas distribution companies are facing increasing pressure to decarbonize. The regulatory model is shifting to accommodate new assets and ways of operating the electric and gas systems. In many jurisdictions, utilities are facing requirements to plan these systems in entirely new ways. Every part of the energy value chain is changing at an unprecedented rate, requiring utilities to both plan and operate these systems differently.
In this environment, the ability to effectively plan, operate, and maintain utility assets is critical. As the energy landscape grows increasingly complex, we bring decades of experience to help you reliably and cost effectively serve your customers. We have been helping our clients with these challenges for more than 40 years.
