Power is one of the most critical components of infrastructure and crucial for the economic growth and welfare of nations. Globally, the power sector is undergoing a significant change that has redefined the industry outlook. The sustained overall economic growth continues to drive electricity demand all economies. Many governments are focusing on attaining Power for All by accelerating the capacity addition across the world. At the same time, the competition is also increasing at both the market and supply sides.
The power industry has worked with big data for years, regularizing and processing significant amounts of information produced on an intra-hourly basis. For some years now, the deriving value from big data that has been generated from across the generation, transmission, distribution units, and end-users of power utilities, has been a concern for corporate executives, although executives mainly focus on the distribution side of power utilities.
Power utilities can optimize the generation, distribution, and consumption of electricity through big data. The development of specially designed IT solutions for electricity grids, and new players, such as decentralized producers of renewable energies, are regularly generating large amounts of data that energy companies need to address. New users of electricity, such as electric vehicles and connected houses, and new communicating equipment, such as smart meters, sensors, and remote-control points, are also causing a surge of data that the energy companies will have to analyze in order to make informed-decisions. Big data technology offers suitable solutions for power utilities to achieve greater reliability, efficiency, flexibility and to preserve the balance between consumption and production in a rapid changing energy landscape.
