This IDC Perspective examines how utilities will look at grid resiliency and asset management through a different lens after going through the challenges of the current COVID-19 pandemic. When evaluating the current grid resiliency and asset management process and procedures in place, utilities will look to identify areas where there can be improvements from a cost, time, reliability, and employee safety perspective.
"As utilities adjust to the new COVID-19 working environment, focus on enhancing the approach to grid resiliency and asset management is at the forefront. Utilities' assets and operations are considered to be critical infrastructure and essential. Ensuring the resiliency of the grid in addition to operating a utility's assets efficiently and safely is top of mind for many utility industry executives," said John Villali, research director, IDC Energy Insights.
