GE Digital to offer Climavisions global weather forecasting technology in its ADMS, Storm Assist, and Storm Readiness software

Software leverages high-resolution radar and satellites to improve weather forecasting

GE Digital announced that it has partnered with Climavision, a pioneering weather tech company that is leveraging high-resolution radar and satellites to improve the accuracy of weather forecasting. The collaboration is designed to help GE Digitals electric utility customers improve their ability to predict weather and better plan for severe storm events.

GE Digital's energy software helps electric utilities plan, control, and optimize the grid across transmission and distribution to support a sustainable and intelligent energy network. With this strategic partnership, GE Digital will offer Climavisions global weather forecasting technology as part of its Advanced Distribution Management Solutions (ADMS), Storm Assist, and Storm Readiness solutions to further enhance weather intelligence.

Storm readiness for utilities is paramount for a reliable electrical grid, and traditional weather forecasts have long played an important role in that process, said Climavision Co-Founder and CEO Chris Goode. However, the velocity of the energy transition demands that we have better forecasts, particularly for renewable energy sources. Climavisions platform will help GE Digitals customers improve their ability to predict weather and mitigate weather-related impacts to the grid around the world.

The Climavision technology will be offered to utility companies served by GE Digital around the world to help them better predict where severe weather will stress the grid and cause outages to critical infrastructure so they can aid storm readiness and response.

"With the impact of climate change, it is critical electric utilities have an accurate and complete picture of current and forecasted weather anywhere in the world." said Jim Walsh, General Manager, Grid Software for GE Digital. "Providing our customers with Climavisions enhanced weather intelligence within their real-time control software helps utilities efficiently plan for events and safely and reliably deliver power."
