Episode #5: AMI and More | Realizing the Full Opportunity of Communications
As the utility industry looks to gain more information at the edge of the distribution network, the need to capture, analyze and act upon sensor data presents a unique opportunity to leverage assets and infrastructures that may already be in place. This is the vision that an AMI system seeks to achieve. While many utilities have deployed this technology, we are now beginning to see leading companies execute on this goal. EnerNex host Ron Chebra interviews Glenn Pritchard, Manager of Advanced Grid Operations & Technology at PECO, about his experiences with bringing convergence of information over the AMI communications infrastructure.

Episode #4 | Enterprise Analytics: From Vision to Reality
Today utilities have the potential to harvest a wealth of information to help them better understand, analyze and control the grid. We’re at the beginning of experiencing the explosive area of Grid of Things, where devices not only perform their fit for purpose design, but are a critical part of a holistic mesh of interconnectedness to more effectively deliver safe and reliable electric service. The plethora of data that is being captured not only needs to be structured, organized, and accessed but also to be analyzed to truly extract greater value. The challenge now is not how to gather data, but rather what to do with all of it. Join host and EnerNex Vice President Ron Chebra in this episode of The Energy Exchange as he explores this topic with special guest Raiford Smith, Vice President of Energy Technology and Analytics at Entergy.
