Decarbonizing the Grid: Resilience at the Edge
Prakash Menon - AVP & Industry Principal - Utilities | March 6, 2020
122 Views

Over the last few years, electric grids have been decentralizing, resulting in wider use of distributed resources with energy flow happening bi-directionally as well as laterally. Utility companies are increasingly implementing solutions such as advanced distribution management systems (ADMS), distributed energy resources management systems (DERMS), virtual power plants, and the internet of things (IoT). Additionally, innovations in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine language (ML) as well as smart sensors becoming cheaper with time are enabling new operational capabilities and business models.

However, there are other factors beyond technology that play a critical role in decarbonizing the electric grid. Government policies play a crucial role in the business strategies of energy and utilities (E&U) companies. Similarly, these companies also need to factor evolving customer expectations and preferences while planning their offerings. Moreover, the emergence of renewable and alternative energy sources, and the economics around them, has given E&U companies plenty to think about. In short, E&U providers are faced with the need to revisit their business models and redefine their offerings in order to not just stay relevant in the changed paradigm, but also to champion the environmental cause.

The California Customer Privacy Act (CCPA)
Prakash Menon - AVP & Industry Principal - Utilities | April 9, 2019
343 Views

California’s new, landmark privacy law “The California Consumer Privacy Act” (CCPA), was unanimously passed by California lawmakers and signed into law by the Governor on June 28th, 2018. It gives California consumers unprecedented personal data protections and sets the tone for similar legislation in other states. This is based on the recent data breaches, and the negative public reaction to them, have underscored the low tolerance consumers have for the perceived misuse of their data, especially as they are constantly being asked to share more and more of it. Governments worldwide are responding to the growing calls for legislation around the protection of personal data. This would require significant changes to their data, information management and information systems for companies dealing in personal data.

Consumers expect digital services that are personal, self-servicing and available 24/7. For many Utilities providers, the first step toward digital customer experience transformation is delivering a best-of-class, on-demand system for customers to pay bills, review their payment history and update account history. The industry is now working to provide customers with timely and targeted communications for system events involving the customer via their preferred communication channel and to build a solid communications platform that meets customer needs. Earlier, the industry had minimal choices when communicating with customers but with two-way Customer Communication a versatile communication platform is established for customers. Two-Way Customer Communication seeks to increase the number of available communication channels starting with the big three: phone, text (SMS), and email.
