The Utility Analytics Institute has launched a new Web-based platform that promotes dialogue, research and strategy among utility analytics professionals.

The site provides unbiased utility analytics research and information, and promotes the sharing of strategies, time-saving measures, best practices, cost efficiencies and lessons learned. Members have exclusive access to analytics business process work groups, private and public discussion forums, webcasts, project databases, and a solution provider network.

"Smart grid technologies are generating vast amounts of data that utilities can use to make its gas and electric systems more reliable," says Rick Harris, vice president and chief technology officer for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E). "The Utility Analytics Institute is helping to drive the innovative use of smart grid data for the benefit of not just our customers in California, but energy customers everywhere."
