The integration of AI within grid operations has witnessed a gradual evolution, yet its momentum is now unstoppable. AI is revolutionizing the landscape by discerning storm impacts on restoration timelines, detecting Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), Electric Vehicles (EVs), and appliances via meter data analysis. Its role extends to expedite outage recovery, predict load patterns, and navigate the complexities of DER proliferation. Effectively managing this surge in DERs demands extensive support from AI-driven applications.
In this panel discussion, we delve into the current strides utilities are making with AI in grid and DER operations. Moreover, we'll spotlight the forthcoming domains where AI is primed to exert the most profound influence.
