Resilience inevitably drives up cost to customers. So how can utilities manage expectations?
Explore why utilities need to plan for the next secondary event now and with people at the core.
Utilities worldwide are adopting digitally enabled solutions for meeting the needs of a rapidly evolving energy landscape.
