Due to the rise in extreme weather events and a laser focus on the customer experience, increasing grid infrastructure resiliency has become more important than ever. A leading cause of power outages, and not just during extreme weather events, is tree contact with transmission lines. While advanced analytics are redefining many aspects of the utility business, vegetation management has not seen the same transformation.
But that is changing. Utilities can now leverage advancements in geospatial-temporal data and analytics to improve their approach to vegetation management. Learn how tools such as The Weather Company Vegetation Management – Predict, built on IBM PAIRS Geoscope, applies predictive analytics to massive data sets to generate robust insights. This GTM mini brief covers how predictive analytics can strengthen utility vegetation management, bolster storm preparation, streamline regulatory processes and improve the customer experience.
