Join us for this complimentary ACCELERATE webinar session on how to Transform the Electrical Grid with a Network Digital Twin and understand how Digital Twins can help provide digital line of sight for better decision making.
During this session, we will explain how our OpenUtilities Digital Twin Services working with AssetWise bring together ET, OT, and IT via a network Digital Twin that makes it possible to consider and use all the information required to manage and operate an integrated grid.
During this session you will learn the following:
The changing landscape of the utility industry, the challenges faced and how Going Digital is key to a more sustainable and resilient asset
How Digital Twins can provide a single view of the plant/asset/network and generate insights to predict and improve asset/network performance
How Bentley can address the need for a more flexible grid design to accommodate multiple energy sources including Renewable sources/DER
