DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Big Data in Utilities – Thematic Research” report has been added to’s offering.


Big data analytics has the potential to address and improve several issues in the power sector – operational, strategic, and financial, among others.

Cloud computing, machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, blockchain and cybersecurity are being deployed by utilities in their operations. These are the big current and future investment avenues for utilities, and they all have one thing in common: they generate huge amount of data. And the data generated is growing each year as more and more smart devices and technologies are being deployed within the power systems infrastructure by utilities as well as consumers. Much of the utilities’ infrastructure is becoming smart – meaning that it has built-in processing, connectivity, and sensing capabilities. Electric vehicles (EVs), smart home systems, grid management systems, and many more subsystems are likely to interface with utilities and provide them with potentially valuable data.

The challenge for utilities is to make this data useful and generate actionable insights from it. Benefiting from big data is not straightforward and utilities need to deploy a range of new IT solutions that allow them to collect the data in consistent ways, transport it, secure it, analyze it and store it. Solutions that manage big data in the industry need to quickly make sense of data from multiple sources and in diverse formats. Several big data analytics products and platforms are already being used in order to harness this data.

Currently only a small number of utilities have adopted big data analytics actively. It is mostly the largest utilities in the world and very few smaller utilities that have embraced the technology. While some of these utilities have designated other companies to implement big data in their businesses, some have collaborated with technology companies through partnerships and joint ventures to build new products and services specific to the power sector that can be sold to other utilities.
