A few weeks ago, I attended the DistribuTECH Conference in San Diego. Every year the show is an eye-opener because every year the level of innovation and intellect on that floor gets greater for me.
Rodger Smith, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Oracle Utilities Global Business Unit
As both utility workforces and infrastructure continue to age, asset management takes on an increasingly vital role. We asked Rodger Smith, senior vice president and general manager of Oracle Utilities Global Business Unit, to share his views on the changing face of utility asset management, and the drivers for these changes.

In an earlier era, responsibility for maintaining the reliability of America's power systems rested chiefly in the hands of public utilities and electric power grid systems.

Much has been written about the role of distributed energy resources (DER), smart meters and other grid connected devices, but the next revolution for the smart grid comes from the utilization of advanced analytics and interoperability.
High-voltage circuit breaker equipment represents a substantial investment for any utility, especially when coupled with today's sophisticated new grid technologies.
There is a big change on the horizon that will impact every utility in the United States, and ultimately worldwide. Telecommunications service providers (what we typically refer to as ‘the carriers') are phasing out circuit-switched phone service in favor of more advanced IP/Ethernet-based offerings.
The current state of the smart grid is not enough for the needs of utilities and their customers. Today's ‘smart grid' is not truly a smart grid, but simply smarter metering.

Dark lager beer tastes good. With a little bit of imagination we can also use beer to illustrate something that few Big Data system vendors want to admit when promoting meter data analytics systems to electricity distribution companies.
The Bigger Picture | Doble Engineering Company Acquires ENOSERV to Meet the Needs of Customers in a Changing Regulatory Environment
Since the 1960's, electric power systems – and the demands on those systems -- have grown substantially. Many power grid assets are getting old enough to retire, as is the baby boomer generation that has been servicing and caring for these assets.
Security Sessions | Modern Wireless Communication Network: The often overlooked building block fo utility physical security systems
Substations and other critical utility infrastructure are increasingly becoming the target of physical security attacks, including trespassing, vandalism, theft, and sabotage.
Eric L. Prentis
The economic theory of ‘free market' competition naturally achieving lower electricity prices in restructured electric utility states is empirically tested in restructured states, pre-and-post restructuring, relative to U.S. electricity prices.
