  • The power-generation industry is changing rapidly. Driven by industry deregulation, increased adoption of renewable energy sources, and a new emphasis on extending facility life cycles, electric-utility operators must carefully consider how to maximize resources and optimize operations.

  • It’s late on a Friday night in San Diego and Max, a controller you might imagine working in the operations control center (OCC) for EDF Renewables, has his eyes full of lights. He scans multiple control screens displaying the status of all the company’s wind turbines scattered across North America. A glance at one screen reveals that a few turbines at a site in Canada are down.

  • Renewable energy adoption is growing all over the world, paving the path to a cleaner, greener future. To meet increasing demand, power companies are stepping up generation efforts. In the first quarter of 2020, renewables reached nearly 28% of global electricity supply, up from 26% in the first quarter of 2019. However, increased renewable energy generation puts increased pressure on critical generation assets. 

  • As IT/OT convergence continues to rise, the proliferation of connected assets in the Power & Utilities industry has resulted in a massive increase in data availability. However, the sheer volume and variety of data has outpaced the ability to analyze it to develop actionable insight.

  • Your organization generates an enormous amount of data that could help you improve your utility’s performance, but if it resides in separate organizational silos with different naming and governance standards, it will be difficult to use data in a way that enables meaningful, timely action.

  • Ansaldo Energia is a 160-year old company headquartered in Genoa, Italy and a leading producer of thermoelectric power generation plants with a focus on plant engineering, manufacturing, and service. The company has over 100 power plants and 300 gas turbines around the world and provides remote monitoring services for customers in 13 countries. At the 2016 OSIsoft EMEA Users Conference, Sandro Gollini, a Diagnostic System Engineer at Ansaldo Energia, and Giuseppe di Bartolo, owner of TQService, discussed how Ansaldo is using the PI System for remote asset monitoring and predictive maintenance.

  • With about 520 employees Vattenfall Hydro Power is the third largest hydro power provider in Europe. Learn how the installation of a new system reduces total maintenance costs while improving the continuous monitoring capabilities of each hydro power plant and increasing the accuracy of the condition of equipment.


  • For numerous years, Kansai Electric Power Co., Japan’s second largest power company, operated as a regional monopoly, providing the majority of power to the Osaka, Kyoto, and Kobe areas. Kansai needed to optimize its nine domestic power plants to be more competitive, but it also wanted to acquire new customers and create new value added services. Using a combination of the PI System, AI and IoT technologies, it all became possible.

  • When your business model is exquisitely sensitive to a changing environment, an investment in real-time data can make the difference between survival and shutdown. That was the case for the Scrubgrass Generating Plant, a 35-employee, 85-megawatt waste-coal-fired power plant in Kennerdell, Pennsylvania. In the last few years, Scrubgrass has used OSIsoft data systems to overcome new market challenges that have already shuttered similar plants.

  • Xcel Energy provides power for 3 million electric customers and 1.9 million natural gas customers across eight states. According to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), it has been America’s leading provider of wind-generated power for the past 11 years, and the company holds a world record for electricity generated from wind power.

  • In 1837, Australian Gas Light Energy (AGL) was founded in Sydney, Australia. At the time, Sydney was a small colonial outpost with less than 35,000 people, and “grid management” consisted of operating a few gas lamps. Today, AGL manages one third of the energy of Australia’s eastern seaboard, where most of the nation’s population lives.

  • We often hear that data is the currency of the future, but it’s actually the currency of right now for energy-generation, transmission, and distribution companies.

  • The rapid growth of renewable energy deployments on grids worldwide has profoundly changed the electric power value chain. Professionals at every link in that chain—from control room operators from generating fleet managers to regional transmission operators—face operational challenges that simply did not exist even a decade ago.
