The Department of Energy observed that the aging grid infrastructure is increasingly put at risk by climate change, with a potential to exceed the limits of power system assets and operations.

Disparate systems and processes of GIS, asset monitoring and simulation limit the opportunities for comprehensive rehabilitation and repair, due to lack of integrated data and systems.

Digital Twin technology is emerging as a powerful enabler for integration of systems, data, and processes in the complex universe of electric utilities. It enables enhanced monitoring, predictive analytics, optimization and autonomous control, with a focus on sustainability.

But how does the digital twin technology provide aid to grid resilience, renewable integration, and asset maintenance without disrupting operations while prioritizing efficiency and sustainability?

Join us for a virtual fireside chat with a panel of industry experts and engineering leaders to break down the why, what, and how of digital twin technology.
