The solution for Today and the Future Grid have one thing in common: location.
The grid we have today will not meet the demands of the 21st century and beyond, and overcoming these many challenges facing utilities seems overwhelming at times. To meet these challenges, organizations need solutions and a way to bring information together to make better business decisions. It's hard to think of a utility process that ignores location. Utilities just work better using a modern GIS and location intelligence. With location intelligence, utilities see a more complete picture of their assets by relating every grid feature to its precise location. ArcGIS models grid elements and influences better investment and operational decision-making. It consumes real-time data from sensors and external sources to heighten awareness of threats. Customers and regulators alike need improved understanding of where grid and community impacts occur. ArcGIS gives users live, colorful visualizations and analytics to measure, monitor and maintain the future grid.
