The Path Forward: Transmission Trends, Digital Transformation, and Regulatory Insights (Sponsored by Utilligent)

We will cover the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) survey results on the most pressing issues facing industry, with links to policy, state regulations and individual programs. As we move to generation, we are joined by Gridliance to discuss FERC 1000 and the future of independent transmission. Finally, we will discuss digital transformation and how expectations and assumptions, even in well-planned initiatives, can be the big difference in customer engagement.

Analytics & The Keys To Future Success: The Exelon Journey (Sponsored by Infosys)

Prior to the implementation of smart grid, visibility to the T&D system was limited. New sources of data such as AMI, reclosers, and distributed sensors at different points along the grid network increase visibility into the performance and health of the assets. The Grid T&D domain is designed to enable EU to leverage smart grid data as a strategic asset to generate actionable intelligence, drive innovation, improve operational efficiencies, and unlock new business insights. The Data Analytics Platform (DAP) will serve as the foundational tool for convergence and scalability of analytical solutions across Exelon Utilities. These analytic insights will drive sustained value by improving reliability and customer satisfaction, decreasing operational cost, and capturing new revenue opportunities.
