At Dominion Energy, maintaining a power grid that delivers energy to more than 7 million customers across 18 states is critical and constant work.
And the equipment, be it a transformer, transmission line, or substation, must occasionally be taken offline in order to be worked on.
Scheduling major system maintenance is a lengthy and regulated process, which is often done years in advance. Some of these maintenance efforts could be derailed with just a few weeks notice due to an unforeseen or late-breaking conflict, setting off a cascade of rescheduling and requiring the relocation of crews and equipment.
With a power grid as vast as Dominion’s, managing the immense amount of maintenance needed to keep the grid operating reliably requires mountains of data.
This data was trapped in a variety of models and systems, which could only be accessed by a small number of people and required a lot of difficult and manual correlation.
Dominion Energy needed a new way to understand and access their data to provide better visibility into their most critical assets.
