AiDash releases White Paper titled ‘Wildfire Mitigation Best Practices for Electric Utilities’
Wildfire mitigation remains a complicated and staggering challenge for electric utilities across the globe. Without exception, utilities are putting significant time, money and resources into discerning wildfire risk and implementing risk mitigation measures. But are they doing it the right way?
Wildfires present a unique financial threat to US power utility companies. To ensure that electric utility-led wildfire ignitions are prevented, it is pertinent to use accurate, accessible and cost-effective technologies that can transform existing wildfire mitigation strategies for the better.
AiDash, a leading satellite analytics company based in the San Francisco Bay Area, today announced the release of their White Paper titled ‘Wildfire Mitigation Best Practices for Electric Utilities’.
This white paper addresses and talks at length about the pressing issue of wildfires being faced by the utility industry today. The paper also focuses on how new technology solutions like satellites and Artificial Intelligence are proving instrumental in revolutionizing wildfire mitigation strategies by delivering actionable insights and results.
“Untrimmed vegetation near power lines can prove lethal. This makes vegetation management vital for wildfire prevention. Satellite analytics combined with Artificial Intelligence can be used for remotely monitoring and survey of T&D lines and vegetation around them. This technology can enable utilities to prevent and detect wildfire ignitions proactively,” said Rahul Saxena, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder, AiDash.
