How certified T&D components help to improve power network performance

Date: November 3, 2015

Electricity is the life blood of modern society. Any interruption to its supply can have a huge impact on individuals, businesses and communities. So the transmission and distribution (T&D) sector, and the energy industry as a whole, must devote extensive resources into trying to avoid power supply disruptions. This webinar, calling on the results from 20 years of testing data, reviews component failure rates to see how certified testing helps utilities reduce the risk of blackouts.


Moisture in Transformer Oil Behavior – a Deeper Look into a Complex Phenomenon

Date: October 22, 2015

As our understanding of how moisture movement in transformers improves, so does the evolution of how we measure it and what it means to life of the asset.   As a continuation of last year’s webinar entitled “Understanding Moisture Dynamics in Power Transformers”, in this presentation we will review some of the fundamentals covered previously but also discuss new topics and share new data and insights gained from recent field test results.

Please join us for this webcast brought to you by Vaisala.

Horizon Utilities Goes Mobile. Tablets…Then Ongoing Field Feedback Drives Success.

Original Broadcast September 16, 2015

Horizon Utilities of Hamilton, Ontario went from paper to Tablet PCs over a 3 year period with significant results including immediate cost savings and improved productivity. Today, they have the lowest operating costs of any utility in Ontario (1/3 less than the average utility) with their initial success largely driven by e-Mobile initiatives in a move to automation. Horizon took a progressive approach, adding functions to keep field workers in the field more often, and less at the office and field force feedback became a critical factor in the overall success of the program.

Storage Enters the Global Stage: What’s the value proposition for your region?

Original Broadcast June 24, 2015

For electricity storage, the events of the last two years have shown that the skepticism around the technology is rapidly evaporating as the storage transitions to a state of deployment. Definitive niches for storage are emerging around Ancillary Services, Renewables Integration, Distribution, and end use applications. However, if you’re planning to adopt or deploy storage, the market can appear to be seemingly everywhere -- but nowhere at the same time.

The answer lies in the pace at which storage opportunities and markets are developing across various regions. DNV GL operates on a global scale with Storage experts in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific. In this webinar, our experts will help you understand value propositions for storage, while drawing on evidence from current operational energy storage projects across the global marketplace.


How to deploy mobile forms + devices to speed up field service processes & reporting

Original Broadcast June 23, 2015

Overcoming the pain points associated with any process is much simpler and more cost effective than you think. This webinar will detail the benefits of switching to mobile forms for field data collection and reporting.
We'll examine real use cases and ROI of integrating mobile forms within a given field service process, including for work orders, inspections, checklists and proposals.
A quick AT&T Mobile Forms demo will reveal the feature rich, user-friendly nature of the solution. You'll see why it’s a must-deploy to speed up data collection, eliminate invoicing/data entry lags and auto-generate/deliver insightful reports.
