With this strategic partnership,GE Digital will offer Climavision’s global weather forecasting technology aspart of its Advanced Distribution Management Solutions (ADMS), StormAssist, and StormReadiness solutions to further enhance weather intelligence.
“Storm readiness for utilities is paramount for a reliable electrical grid, and traditional weather forecasts have long played an important role in that process,” said Climavision Co-Founder and CEO ChrisGoode. “However, the velocity of the energy transition demands that we have better forecasts, particularly for renewable energy sources. Climavision’s platform will help GE Digital’s customers improve their ability to predict weather and mitigate weather-related impacts to the grid around the world.”
The Climavision technology will be offered to utility companies served by GE Digital around the world to help them better predict where severe weather will stress the grid and cause outages to critical infrastructure so they can aid storm readiness and response.
