The Utility Analytics Institute conducted a research study sponsored by ABB to assess how far the utility industry has progressed in its evolution toward a smart grid and maturation of smart grid analytics. The Current State of Smart Grid Analytics research report relies on a survey of utility leaders and other primary sources to develop a first-hand account of where things stand today.
The report includes compelling analytics, success stories, and identifies some daunting challenges. Readers of the report will find familiar analytics applications and some that are surprising. The research study demonstrates that smart grid analytics offer tremendous value-generation opportunities but challenges exist that can make it difficult to capture that value.
