Smart Grid Webinar:
Fighting Energy Theft with Analytics
Date: Mar 27, 2013
Time: 2:00 ET PM
Energy theft costs consumers billions of dollars every year as utilities recoup losses in the form of increased rates. The FBI and International Utility Revenue Protection Association estimate that energy theft drains the U.S. economy of $6 billion annually – about the same as loss caused by auto theft. The Edison Institute estimates that the prevention of electricity theft and retail customer payment default are together a $5 billion business opportunity.
Many utilities are using increasingly sophisticated analytics to identify possible electricity diversion, and while smart grid technology has created new ways to catch energy thieves, it has also created novel ways to steal energy. How are utilities facing this challenge?
Chartwell’s webinar, Smart Grid: Fighting Energy Theft with Analytics, brings together subject matter experts with groundbreaking initiatives aimed at identifying, stopping and preventing energy theft. Learn workable methods to catch energy thieves from Oncor and Fujitsu Laboratories of America.
