The Journey to a Grid Digital Twin

Join us for a presentation on The Journey to a Grid Digital Twin by SPIDA Software’s Brett Willitt during the DistribuTECH Conference May 23-25 2022. Time TBD.

The energy transition is introducing new challenges for utilities that build and manage our electrical grid.  Imagine if you had a digital representation of the entire grid, and could use that to simulate and optimize different design and operational alternatives?  How can you use that to dramatically improve the productivity of your teams, while at the same time improving the quality of their design and operational decisions?  In this presentation, we’ll talk about the importance of an open multi-vendor approach to digital twins, and about how it is not a product but rather a journey.  We’ll share some of the early lessons learned implementing digital twins, and the importance of delivering tangible results and continuously learning in every step of that journey.
