Customers and regulators have expectations that reliability levels should continue to improve without any substantial costs to themselves. Utilities want to provide continual reliability improvements for their customers, but need to do it in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible. This webinar will explore data driven methodologies to optimize reliability planning based on historical performance, available budgets, and root cause analysis. Best practices for data collection and retention will be discussed, as will using reliability optimization as a springboard for a broader analytical strategy. This session is ideal for anyone who is interested in the reliable distribution of electricity.
