How we can help

The top five weather challenges for utility providers


Scale your energy supply to demand, anticipate spikes, and prevent outages

Forecasting is crucial for power utilities as it plays a pivotal role in ensuring the efficient and reliable delivery of electricity to consumers. With evolving weather patterns and the increasing frequency of severe weather events, accurate and timely forecasting is essential for power utilities to effectively plan and adapt their operations.

By accurately predicting the impact of major weather events, power utilities can proactively prepare for potential disruptions and take necessary measures to ensure a swift and effective recovery. With relevant intelligence at their disposal, they can make informed decisions regarding resource allocation, crew coordination, and equipment maintenance to minimize downtime and maximize customer satisfaction.

Additionally, forecasting helps power utilities address specific challenges such as wildfire risks and the placement of renewable energy infrastructure. By understanding and addressing these risks, they can better protect their assets, optimize clean energy initiatives, and ensure the resiliency of their power generation systems.

decrease downtime

Respond quickly to minimize impact

Severe weather events have the potential to disrupt service delivery, threaten infrastructure, and endanger field service workers. Storms can cause power outages, while wildfires can damage power lines and other utility infrastructure. Lightning strikes also pose risks to both personnel and equipment. These weather-related hazards can lead to injuries, property damage, and even fatalities.

With the power of our network, you can instantly see where and when outages have been triggered by weather incidents and where ongoing weather could affect your crew’s response. Armed with precise data, you can swiftly deploy responders to address the issues, keeping customers happy while minimizing financial and reputational risk.

Collaborate with local fire service agencies and utilize real-time intelligence and alerts for high-risk areas, providing responsive service and mitigating potential risks in a timely manner.


Optimize grid efficiency

Severe weather is pushing electrical systems beyond the limits of their design – increasing outages and destabilizing supply. Real-time, local weather intelligence helps you prepare for challenging conditions and do all you can to keep the lights on when lightning, wildfires, and other severe weather strikes.

By prioritizing weather forecasting, monitoring, and alerting, you can create a comprehensive risk management strategy. Real-time monitoring, documentation, and alerting systems provide valuable data enabling utilities to develop a clear narrative for risk management and improve their overall service delivery.

Severe weather can put customer and staff lives at risk. It’s important you have the ability to visualize changing conditions and analyze safety risks in the moments that matter. With a clear picture of the situation, you can safely deploy your teams.

Implementing effective weather monitoring solutions, such as remote automated weather stations and lightning sensors, allows weather and risk management professionals to detect and track weather-related risks in real-time. This information helps them make informed decisions regarding field crew coordination, resource allocation, and customer support.

We help you create clear and actionable alerts so your employees receive timely information about potential hazards tied to specific protocols and operating procedures, empowering your team to take appropriate actions to safeguard themselves, customers, and infrastructure.
