Leaders and Laggards on the Path to a Net-Zero Utility
How prepared are utilities for a net-zero world? Utilities are facing profound changes, driven by market reform, new technology and increased competition. The transition brings with it downside risk as well as upside opportunities. The result is previously analogous firms moving in different directions. BloombergNEF has developed transition scores to quantify transition risk for global power utilities and assess their business model preparedness for a net-zero world. The shift toward a low-carbon economy is already underway and will bring new market conditions. Transition risks stemming from this shift will affect business model profitability and longevity. This presentation will explore the challenges utilities are facing on the path to net zero and identify which utilities are adapting the fastest.

How National Grid Optimizes Vegetation Management and Grid Reliability With Satellite Technology
Storms are now more frequent and damaging. O&M expenses for vegetation management rise even as budgets constrict. And requirements for regulatory accountability are expanding. One of National Grid’s answers to these challenges to do more with less is in satellite technology, a highly scalable, unique solution for today’s vegetation management. Join this session to learn how National Grid optimized their vegetation management program to unlock efficiencies, save O&M expenses and simultaneously increase reliability. 
 
Every utility must work with vegetation, customer impacts, weather events, regulators and more. The right metrics help you understand what is actually happening, plan your programs, and communicate with your stakeholders. Join us to learn how to gather the right data, report accurately to your stakeholders, and make the most effective improvements – while you save costs and optimize your grid’s reliability for your customers.
 
Attend this session to learn how to:
  • Unlock new efficiencies in vegetation maintenance.
  • Decrease cycle-trimming costs. 
  • Reinvest efficiencies to improve reliability. 
  • Use satellite technology and AI for crucial information and planning.
