Utility Power Risk Analysis

Analyzing risk to utility power grids

MDA combines geospatial and weather forecasting expertise to help electric utilities prepare for power outages. Our Utility Power Risk Analysis helps define a power grid's vulnerability to power outages caused by tree and wind damage. Analysis of tree growth, soil saturation and other environmental factors is cross referenced with expert forecasts of high wind events to highlight areas of the grid that are more likely to sustain damage. This helps utility companies better prepare for severe weather by pre-staging repair crews and lowering operations and management costs.
