How to forecast green energy production - The recipe for success

In the absence of suitable energy storage solutions, you must be able to continually balance electricity production and consumption. That’s one of the main challenges holding back the growth of renewable energy sources such as solar PV and wind power, with their inherent variability. It’s not just that you can’t rely on…

Why artificial intelligence is essential for utilities’ success in the new world

Artificial Intelligence, or AI for short, is nothing new; it goes way back to the 1950s. But things are different now; the vast volumes of data and the computing capabilities we have today mean we can do things better. So, what pain points are utilities seeing today that AI can help with?…

Digital Twins: Anticipating the arrival of performance benefits for utilities

The ‘Digital Twin’ is expected to have a tremendous impact along the entire E&U value chain – improving the performance of the power generation plant, high voltage distribution network, low voltage transportation line, sub-station and more. There’s no limitation. While the term dates back to around 2002, the Digital Twin is still work in progress.…

As conditions change in the nuclear industry, so must processes

Until relatively recently nuclear operators were used to a world in which they were expected to supply a constant baseload to the grid.  This now changes, due in large part to the growing importance of renewables.  By its nature, renewable output is variable, and this means that the grid must be balanced to take into…

E-vehicles, smart innovation and societal change

The rapid growth of electric vehicles is a social and industrial phenomenon with far-reaching implications. In around five years, the e-vehicle has moved from being an expensive statement of green credentials for Hollywood stars to the first transport choice for individuals and fleet managers. The evidence is everywhere. In China, there are driving restrictions on vehicles that use fossil…

Analytics and the Utility Balancing Act

As everybody working in electricity knows, generation and consumption must be permanently balanced.  In this respect, it’s not like any other sector.  If a brewery makes too much beer, you can keep it for a while, you can drink it, or even pour it away. Electricity doesn’t work like that – and even if storage is just beginning to feature in…

Electricity generation and the analytic edge

Further down the power value chain, we’re getting used the idea that digital and progress are inextricably linked – from balancing at local grid level to the delivery of personalized services to domestic and business consumers. Well it’s time to head back to the start of the chain, and ask how digital transformation and specifically, data analytics can positively impact practices…

Data analytics and the utilities value chain

Until relatively recently, nobody really thought about a utility value chain at all.  Electricity was a commodity. It was generated and distributed to the people who needed it. It was consumed and billed according to energy consumption. All over the world, distribution has historically been through a mainly radial top-down grid. When electricity always flowed from the transmission grid…

Utilities entering the new data-driven era

For years, buying electricity, gas or water required an average of just nine minutes of engagement with a provider once a year. All that is changing: today’s digital customer expects an engaging, personalized digital service from their utility providers. Furthermore, utilities are facing new competition from non-utility players with new, more agile business models. These new players — including…
