Digital disruption at Africa’s grid edge

How can African utilities prepare for the big issues facing their counterparts around the world - the challenge to integrate renewables into the grid and the best way to engage customers? This Engerati and Oracle co-branded webinar outlines strategic solutions for a digitised energy network.

Recorded: 25 Apr 2017

Webinar Overview

Distributed energy resources are now an established part of most African utilities’ generation mix but most are outside the utilities’ direct control.

In this live webinar, Oracle discusses the best strategy and solutions for managing digital disruption at the grid edge in an African energy context.

The global software company advises that utilities should adopt ‘an edge to the enterprise’ approach. This means giving stakeholders the data and device visibility they need while increasing operational efficiency.

Join in this webinar to:

  • Learn how data from intermittent distributed generation and variations in consumption patterns are vital to efficiently control African utility networks
  • Understand how state and privately owned African utilities can leverage the growth of data to drive safe and reliable performance.
  • Discover how digital utility transformation enables the delivery of new energy services faster and with less risk.
