  • Register for the Webcast: Digital Twins: Why Every Utility Should Take Note

Grid modernization and technological advancement are not mutually exclusive efforts. To become a data-driven grid operator, utilities must advance digitally and that is a continuous process. The need to reduce and even eliminate discipline and data silos is reaching a critical mass. Utilities need to access the data currently isolated in disconnected IT systems, as well as integrate and connect the environments that support planning, design, operations and maintenance. What are the possibilities for a utility if they can break down the information barriers and bring light to dark data? One very important answer is making use of digital twins.

The worlds of engineering technology (ET), information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) are quickly drawing closer. With open, connected data environments, digital twins are accelerating product and process development, optimizing performance, and enabling predictive maintenance. Every infrastructure segment is advancing digitally, on project sites, in smart buildings and plants and in utilities and cities. Companies are using digital twins in a number of industries, making it easier to design and operate complex products and processes. And as each utility’s digital strategy evolves, digital twins can become a real and executable thing.

In this session, the panelists will address the following:

  1. Exploring various meanings of digital twins
  2. Getting beyond recognition to realization of value- exploring challenges, barriers and needs
  3. Providing real-time information to an open environment – the living digital twin
  4. Realizing digital twin value across many digital workflows (use cases)
