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.

(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."
