Power utilities are experiencing fundamental industry changes. Sourcing more power from renewables requires more intelligent power grid operations, and energy deregulation is leading utilities to become more customer centric by providing better customer care and managing power outages more proactively. In light of these industry changes, utilities are using the cloud to help transform themselves and move toward decarbonization.
