Lessons from the Real World - Integrating AMI and OMS

Tuesday, April 22nd


Free Webinar - 1:30 pm EDT

Lessons from the Real World - Integrating AMI and OMS: Avoiding the Landmines. You've got AMI data. You've got an OMS. So you'll just pour the former into the latter and you'll revolutionize your outage management. Right? Not so fast.

Yes, you can vastly improve OMS results with smart meter data, but the process of integrating the two is fraught with pitfalls. That's why Smart Grid News recruited two of North America's top authorities to give you advice:

• Ranjan Raja, Meter Data & Operations Integration Manager, BC Hydro
• Forrest Small, VP of Grid Optimization Strategy, Bridge Energy Group

In this webinar you'll learn the three biggest pitfalls, as well as five tactics you can use to avoid them. We'll also talk about the quantifiable benefits you can expect if you do things the right way.

Equally important, we'll give you multiple opportunities to ask questions during the session. We'll even provide written answers to questions we don't have time to answer on air. So when you register below, don't neglect to type in your top-of-mind issues. We'll use them to tailor the webinar to your needs and interests.  Click here to register now.

California continues to be a leading solar market in the United States. A plethora of sunny days combined with supportive solar policies have created an ideal solar market. Each market segment—utility-scale, residential and commercial—can boast a number of beneficial programs and incentives.

The U.S. is among the top countries in the world in electricity generated by the Sun and several of the world's largest utility-scale installations are located in the desert Southwest. There are plans to build many other large solar plants in the United States. While the U.S. has no national energy policy, many states have set individual renewable energy goals with solar power being included in various proportions. Governor Jerry Brown has signed legislation requiring California's utilities to obtain 33 percent of their electricity from renewable energy sources by the end of 2020.

Focusing on recent technology and commercial market developments within PV, CSP, CPV, OPVC, BIPV, Thin Film and solar thermal, SolarTech West Coast 2014, is a strictly B2B conference and exhibition.
