Andres will review the transformation that he has been leading at Austin Energy over the past four years. The steps to build the nation's first smart grid have been driven by the need to simplify infrastructure, improve decision making, adapt to faster changing business needs, improve disaster recovery and business continuity planning, improve regulatory compliance, increase quality standards, increase reliability, increase customer satisfaction and reduce operational costs.
Austin Energy's Smart Grid is powered by a Software Oriented Architecture that follows the principle of delivering presentation, process, and information as services to all stakeholders. From controlling central power plants, distributed energy plants, the wholesale energy system, the transmission and distribution grid, the meters, smart appliances at customer sites, and the delivery of timely information via portals to all customer types.
