Wednesday, October 17 | 3:00 PM – 3:45 PM

This is an exciting and transformational time for the electric utility industry… we are working to provide more distributed, clean and smart options while we continue to serve our core customer base. Part of this work includes modernizing the energy system, or grid. Customer expectations about how energy is provided and marketplace dynamics for how energy is produced and distributed are evolving rapidly. Our customer’s needs are evolving from the traditional sole expectations of high reliability and low rates to additional expectations of flexibility, informative, renewable and value creating with many desiring to actively participate in their energy administration. All of these efforts create an enormous amount of data that must be collected, analyzed and acted upon. This talk will present Alliant Energy grid modernization efforts, and discuss their first big data platform initiative.
