CURRENT believes the problems facing utilities in today’s world range from increased regulatory pressures, to distributed generation and electric vehicle adoption, and reliability concerns associated with aging infrastructure. The ability for utilities to be proactive for such issues requires them to seek enhanced connectivity to their assets and consumers. Having stronger oversight of their networks through increased connectivity allows utilities to handle the pressures they face in today’s environment.
With enhanced connectivity to assets and consumers comes exponentially increased amount of data. Collecting data is simply not enough if a utility truly wants to embrace the capabilities of a smarter grid. The ability for a utility to make real operational use of this data requires analytical tools that are designed to specifically look for the types of problems, events, and information which will allow a utility to make intelligent operational decisions.
The combination of CONNECTIVITY + ANALYSIS = INTELLIGENCE.
CURRENT is uniquely positioned to provide utilities with Connected Intelligence through its comprehensive portfolio of robust, flexible and interoperable connectivity hardware (infrastructure) products and analytics software. By layering analytics on top of the connected network, utilities can gain true operational intelligence on the performance of their distribution grid, discover ways to improve efficiency and reliability, and proactively identify and respond to critical issues.
CURRENT = CONNECTED INTELLIGENCE™
Challenges faced by utilities today cannot be addressed without increased communication. Central to this is increased connectivity – to infrastructure assets and consumers.
CURRENT’s connectivity solutions make it easier for utilities to retrieve data from meters, distribution transformers and feeders, and communicate the valuable information back to a central location.
With greater connectivity comes an exponential increase in the amount of raw data generated. Utilities need powerful analytical tools to leverage the information being generated and collected from their distribution grid.
CURRENT’s analytic software resolves data overload by refining information into a user-friendly format that delivers critical information and enables CURRENT’s solution to scale easily.
Increased connectivity and integration of analytics is a powerful combination that can take a utility from having little or no data from its network to gaining knowledge and supporting predictive analysis, thus delivering a smarter grid that supports intelligent operational decisions.
CURRENT’s portfolio of connectivity hardware and analytic software provides utilities with robust solutions that deliver Connected Intelligence.
