The Eversource Energy Center and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) hosted a two-day workshop on predictive analytics and storm situational awareness for grid resilience on Thursday, January 19 and Friday, January 20. The event welcomed 40 participants from seven utilities across the United States, including AVANGRID, CenterPoint, ConEdison, Orange and Rockland, National Grid, Exelon and Eversource Energy. Scientists from the Department of Energy’s Argonne and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), as well as University of Connecticut faculty from the School of Business, School of Engineering, and the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources also participated in the two day event.
The workshop featured five dynamic areas advancing storm awareness planning and response.
Each of the five areas included two presentations by subject-matter experts, followed by robust roundtable discussions for an engaging exchange of best practices, current challenges, and new research ideas. EPRI intends to use the outcomes of this workshop to direct future research efforts that will be led by the Eversource Energy Center.
