Grid Analytics Europe 2018: Big Data Management, Analytics & Visualisation to Power the Smart Utility
The 4th annual Grid Analytics Europe 2018 draws together 120+ utility big data professionals for 3 intensive days of big data management, analysis and visualisation discussions to power the smart utility. 16+ utility case-studies reveal how European TSOs and DSOs are implementing cutting-edge tools and technologies for advanced data collection, management, analysis and visualisation to deepen their insights into grid performance, fraud prevention, and new product development in preparation for the energy transition.
Speakers share their technical strategies for migrating toward a more data-driven organisation, leveraging new and existing data sources from smart meters, sensors, historical, external, social media and other data sources to drive use-case expansion. Technical presentations address; the integration of legacy systems to ensure the seamless flow of data across multiple systems; new data governance frameworks to meet strict GDPR requirements; advanced data cleansing, standardisation and structuring approaches to ensure data quality and consistency; innovative data analysis and visualisation models to provide deeper insights for a range of use-cases spanning the smart utility organisation. Additionally, the impact of emerging technologies such as Machine Learning, AI, blockchain and cloud will be considered in the context of next generation big data capabilities.
Alongside the case-study programme, there is a 2-hour Cloud tutorial, a technology innovation panel discussion, a series of intimate end-user roundtables, a live demo lab of the latest systems and solutions, an exhibition area displaying 10+ state of the art technology suppliers, and an evening networking reception open to all participants.
