AES said it will deploy a Smart Operations Center in Ohio to use data to increase the efficiency of its U.S. electric operations.
The company said in a statement that the facility represents its “longstanding commitment to the digital transformation of the energy industry.”
The digital hub is planned to integrate AES’ new Global Performance Monitoring and Analytics Center and Remote Operations and Control Center for U.S.-based generation assets. The company said this move to consolidate is critical as the company intensifies its reliance on data and smart grid technologies.
The AES Smart Center will enable the company to monitor, remotely operate and improve the management of its power generation operations, including solar, wind, hydro, thermal and energy storage facilities from one central location.
"The transition to a cleaner, more efficient energy future depends in large part on the adoption of digital technology,” said Bernerd Da Santos, AES Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
AES is the parent company of Dayton Power & Light, which will host the facility at its MacGregor Park site.
