In the face of today’s challenges such as electrification, unpredictable weather, and aging infrastructure, utilities’ backup battery systems are more important than ever. It’s crucial that these batteries can perform as manufactured whenever they are called upon. Continuous remote monitoring provides constant data and ensures that data is consistent, regardless of utility staffing shortages, training needs or other workforce challenges so that utilities can prevent problems from becoming failures.
The grids of tomorrow will be smarter and greener, but no matter what, they must be resilient — and battery monitoring systems can ensure that they are. This playbook explores three key areas of improvement utilities will realize from continuous remote battery monitoring systems:
