Utility Analytics Institute Launches New Online Platform

AURORA, Colo. --(Business Wire)--

Energy utility companies are dealing with a perfect storm of rapid-fire changes and challenges: increased demand, regulatory uncertainty, financial constraints, aging infrastructure, environmental considerations, changing weather patterns, emerging technologies, customer engagement issues, and increasingly-analytics data overload.

The Utility Analytics Institute-the largest community of utility analytics professionals in the U.S.-has just launched a new web-based platform for its members. Offering online peer groups, communities and events, the new portal-which can be previewed at Member.UtilityAnalytics.com- provides unbiased utility analytics research and information, and promotes the sharing of strateies, time-saving measures, best practices, cost efficiencies and lessons learned. Members have exclusive access to analytics business process work groups, private and public discussion forums, webcasts, project databases, a solution provider network and more.


"Smart grid technologies are generating vast amounts of data that utilities can use to make its gas and electric systems more reliable," said Rick Harris, vice president and chief technology officer for Pacific Gas and Electric Company. "The Utility Analytics Institute is helping to drive the innovative use of smart grid data for the benefit of not just our customers in California, but energy customers everywhere."

Current utility members include executives from Black Hills Corporation, Duke Energy (News - Alert), Exelon, KCP&L, OG&E, Pacific Gas and Electric, SDGE, SMUD, Southern California Gas Company, Southern Company, WE Energies and others.
