With the vast amount of data available to utilities, how do you make your control center more reliable, accessible, and efficient? Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) has the answer.  Join Paul Lau, Assistant General Manager for Power Supply & Grid Operations, as he discusses how SMUD successfully upgraded its distribution control center to handle new smart grid demands.

SMUD, winner of the 2013 Smart Grid Project of the Year Award from Power Grid International, has implemented more than 20 projects to modernize its grid, reduce costs, increase energy savings, and improve reliability. One of SMUD’s projects, with the help of Intergraph’s GIS and OMS technology, established an electronic wall map that creates a centralized hub for smart grid operations and eliminates paper processes.

Attend this webcast, sponsored by Intergraph Corporation, to learn the best practices to creating a smarter control center for your organization – helping you operate the network efficiently, expedite outage restorations, and be responsive to customer demands.
