Transmission and distribution
As the utilities industry embarks on a transformation from the era of vertical unbundling to the era of smart meters and smart grids, the focus on improving transmission and distribution (T&D) operations has never been greater.
Today’s enterprises need to formulate and implement smart distribution solutions that aim for ultimate customer satisfaction, while focusing on the safety of employees, citizens and the environment. Creating an operating environment that is 'low on losses and high on efficiency' calls for a strategic technology road map that addresses immediate and future requirements.
Challenges and opportunities
Increased complexity: There is a sea change in today’s operating environment owing to changes caused by socio-economic conditions of consumers, mergers and acquisitions, and escalating regulatory and environmental pressures. These changes, coupled with an aging infrastructure and workforce, have only made the business climate more complex.
Continuous operational improvements: Utilities continuously strive for efficient T&D operations to drive service reliability, regulatory compliance and safety. Having access to solutions that monitor and improve these operational parameters is critical to bolstering efficiency.
