Operational Technology (OT) Transformation in Power & Utilities

Every utility is familiar with the challenges of “the three D’s” -- decentralization, decarbonization, and digitization. Each has a substantial impact on the operations technology (OT) of utilities. Managing distribution systems with ever-increasing levels of distributed energy resources (DERs) can be daunting. AWS Power & Utilities provides the powerful tools you need to manage the complex technical, operational, and economic ramifications of having a high penetration of interconnected DERs. Our track record with some of the world’s leading water and energy providers illustrate the way these system tools provide situational awareness -- to track and mitigate the impact of DERs on grid reliability -- while also capturing the economic value of DERs for distribution, bulk power systems, and retail customers.

Use cases

Distributed Energy Resource Management (DERMS)

With lower cost batteries, the rise of prosumers, connected devices, and intermittent energy resources like solar, your utility needs a new set of tools to optimize interconnected DERs based on real-time data. AWS big data analytics, machine learning (ML), and IoT capabilities allow you to extract insights from millions of residential, commercial, and other assets. Leverage AWS to optimize your grid for stability, sustainability, cost, and safety. And, you can maximize the lifecycle of your integrated distributed resources by securely connecting to and controlling all your equipment and devices.
