Rethinking Vegetation Management on Electric Utility Corridors — combining AI & Satellite Data
May 12, 2020
Vegetation Management (VM) is a top priority for electric utilities. It is the single most important lever for mitigating risks of wildfires and power outages. Despite serious efforts and investment by utilities, reality shows critical information gaps still exist — with safety, environmental and financial risks as a result. A complete view on the current state and forecasted state of vegetation is critical for an effective workflow to mitigate these risks. The rise of satellite data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) brings the opportunity to close the loop with continuous data-driven vegetation management intelligence. Helping to improve the safety and reliability of the power line system.
