Emerging factors to watch in the power and utilities industry

These are the four areas of emerging technology growth and legislative focus that will likely influence the direction of the industry.

  • Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) 2.0
    • The convergence of next-generation technologies such as smart meters, edge computing, advanced grid operations, cybersecurity, intelligent automation, and 5G networking will continue to reshape the industry.
  • Distributed Energy Resource Management Systems (DERMS)
    • A combination of hardware and software that allows for better real-time management of the grid by controlling and coordinating various distributed energy resources such as solar, wind, and battery storage.
  • Enterprise Asset Management (EAM)
    • The use of new technologies to improve asset performance and reliability for both power generation plants, linear distributed assets (like power lines) and fleet assets (like transformers) will continue to increase.
  • Government Regulations and Legislation
    • The Infrastructure, Investment, and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) are two pieces of US legislation that will drive continued change for utilities, especially as they relate to meeting social goals and providing to underserved communities.
