Data is the currency of the modern utility ecosystem, and this track explores the solutions and capabilities, from advanced metering to market settlements and integrated analytics, all designed to help utilities drive greater value from their meter data, connect the dots for meter-to-cash-to-customer visibility, and enhance operational performance.
Welcome to the 2020 Oracle Utilities Customer Edge Conference! In our day one opening session, we’re excited to show you some of the coolest new features and solutions across our portfolio. We’ll take you on a journey through some of the most common challenges utilities around the world are facing – journeys you’re sure to recognize – and showcase how we are continuing to deliver solutions to tackle these challenges.
There's no better way to start these sessions than by hearing from utilities about the innovations, successes, and challenges they've experienced in their metering initiatives. This session helps you get to know fellow track participants through an open forum–style discussion. This is a great way to identify industry colleagues you'd like to follow up with later in the week. Come ready to share your story with the group as well.
In this session learn Oracle Utilities' perspective on the future of metering, what it is seeing across the industry, and what it is working on to help utilities be ready.
Whether you are considering an AMI project, in the midst of a meter rollout, or fully deployed and operational with your AMI program, there are keys to maximizing the value of AMI--and the treasure trove of data that comes with it--for operational and customer benefit. In this session, we will consider these pillars of AMI success to deliver more value from your AMI program.
While topics such as changing customer demand and energy efficiency dominate the headlines, it is the impact that digital and grid edge services have on energy delivery and the business model that is the most transformational aspect of the energy industry. 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.
The water industry is challenged with leaks, backflow testing, technology advancements, and customer facing issues. Join other water utilities as we explore these challenges and more in this industry specific peer to peer round table event facilitated by Blue Heron Consulting.
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.
