AI-Powered Data Analytics Playbook: Better Grid Outcomes Through Behind-The-Meter 8760 Intelligence

The grid is growing exponentially more complex. Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) such as solar and wind are shifting the predictability of energy generation, while an increasing number of consumer electric vehicles (EVs) and large-scale EV fleets have introduced more variability and greater peaks on the demand side.

To support energy providers in implementing futureready grid planning and management strategies, we’ve developed this playbook that sets out best-practice approaches, including:

  • Step 1: Build a Territory-Wide, Bottom-Up “8760 Energy Model” (8760) Data Foundation
  • Step 2: Plan to Realize Organization-Wide Meter Data Value
  • Step 3: Make Better Informed Decisions about NonWires Alternatives and Infrastructure Investments

In addition, to round out the playbook, we examine three use cases of 8760 data-informed grid strategies in practice: EV and DER grid capacity planning and extreme weather-related planning.
