Risk, reliability & recovery digital conference
Leverage technology to manage risk & optimize reliability
Aging infrastructure, new regulations and major weather events, combined with CAPEX constraints and reduced O&M budgets mandate risk-based decision making to optimize limited resources. While new technologies can help utilities overcome many of these challenges, they can be complicated to navigate. Attend our informative keynote panel session to discover how utilities are successfully leveraging technology, intelligent devices and big data to prioritize resources, mitigate risk and maximize reliability. This virtual conference will take on some of the most pressing issues currently facing the industry - a shifting regulatory environment, tight budgets, aging equipment and DER integration. Join us September 22 for keynote at 11 am ET, followed by 8 sessions in 2 tracks.

Digitization of the grid
Making the smart grid smarter
The Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to make the smart grid smarter, and now there’s even a service and people dimension added to this evolution called the Internet of Things, Services and People (IoTSP). New technologies increase the digitization of grid facilities, converging data, sensors, communications and controls.
Don’t miss the “Protection & control for the future power system” session of the ABB “Risk, reliability & recovery” digital conference on Sept 22 at 2 pm ET.

Transformer physical security
Enhance substation resiliency
The financial and emotional impact of a severe-weather related outage is costly. On top of weather concerns, comes a wave of physical attacks on targeted substations and power transformers. Learn how prototype recovery transformers and ballistic protection offer practical defenses from man and nature to enhance substation resiliency.
Don’t miss the “How secure is your substation?” session of the ABB “Risk, reliability & recovery” digital conference on Sept 22 at 2 pm ET.

Optimizing performance
Asset lifecycle management
To capitalize on the convergence of IT and OT, utilities need to be able to leverage the information from these diverse sources to get (near) real-time views into the actual conditions of assets on the network. One way is to use connected asset lifecycle management to optimize performance across operations, maintenance and engineering.
