We've talked for years about the digitalization of the power industry. Today, it is no longer a what if or how to, but more about how advanced things will get! And that brings us to our September Special Issue - "Enhancing the Digital Utility." 

For this issue, we want to hear from you! We are seeking stories, white papers, and case studies from our community for this Special Issue Edition. We are especially looking for insights on the following topics: AI, Augmented Reality, GIS, IoT, Digital Twins, Digitalization of Operations, The Cloud, and any other related topics.  

Our Special Issues present a unique opportunity to share your experiences with peers in the industry and perhaps even help kickstart conversations that help you and others uncover new potential solutions and opportunities. 

Your access to Member Features is limited.

Below are a few topic prompt ideas to get you started:

  • How has the advent of smart technologies all across the power supply chain changed your business operations? 
  • How have customer expectations and requirements evolved in the era of the digital utility? 
  • Have you found technologies or programs within the digital utility realm to be more hype than reality? 
  • What are you doing to train existing staff and hire new staff as it pertains to new technologies? 
  • Where do you see the critical lessons of the digital utility today influencing the direction of the sector tomorrow?

With your submission to the September 2022 Special Issue on 'Enhancing the Digital Utility,' we invite you to consider the list of topics and topic prompts mentioned above and participate in the group knowledge sharing and brainstorming process only available via the Energy Central Community.
