Jay Oliver
Managing Director, Grid Systems Integration
Maria Kretzing
Head of Innovation
As the energy grid continues to evolve with the emergence of electric vehicles (EVs), developing EV-centric programs that prevent grid congestion, support high energy demands, and engage customers is critical. Smart meter data, when combined with artificial intelligence (AI)-powered analytics, enables utilities to detect individual EV ownership and characterize charging patterns on the grid for a more comprehensive understanding of consumption, growth and total load impact.

In this session, Managing Director, Grid Systems Integration, Duke Energy, Jay Oliver, sits down with Bidgely’s Head of Innovation, Maria Kretzing, to discuss Duke Energy’s concerted approach to managing the EV revolution through a combination of key technology and corporate partnerships and the strategic application of data analytics.

Customer and Grid:
How Data Analytics Unlocks Both Sides of the Meter for Visualizing, Managing, and Optimizing the Impact of DERs
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 10:30-11:30am | Rm 28A-E
Today’s grid is growing exponentially complex, particularly with the rapid proliferation of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and the transformative role of the customer in the supply-demand equation. Understanding the impact of DERs and grid assets is critical, and data analytics plays a key role in driving visibility, optimization and actionable outcomes.
