We are excited about the changes happening here at UAI. The Executive Advisory Council has agreed upon a new model of working groups.
Based on member feedback, we are changing the name of “Working Groups” to “Advancement Groups” to better reflect the deliverables of our combined efforts. The new “Advancement Groups” fall into four broad “Communities,” again, based on the feedback of our members:
The new model will be agile (occurring in three- to four-month sprints) and focus on a more specific topic within an “Advancement Group.”
The Grid Operations Analytics Community will identify performance strategies, tools, and metrics to monitor grid health and mitigate system risk to drive operational efficiencies, maintain/improve system reliability, and reduce equipment failures and emergent/emergency work.
Within the community of Grid Ops, we will pursue the following Advancement Groups:
The Customer Analytics Community will share utility experiences and use cases that demonstrate the role of analytics in understanding customers, deepening relationships, increasing satisfaction, and optimizing the performance of programs, products, services, and the channels through which they are offered.
Within the community of Customer Analytics, we will pursue the following Advancement Groups:
The Analytics Architecture & Technology Community will explore architectural and technology options for business-driven data science and analytics using sound architectural technologies to support a wide range of options from business unit analytics to enterprise data science and deliver tangible business value.
Within the community of Analytics Architecture & Technology, we will pursue the following Advancement Groups:
The Asset Optimization & Performance Management Community will explore ways to make utility operations related to the utilization of distribution, transmission and generation assets more efficient and optimized using data analytics and technology. The group will also seek to identify the right performance strategies, tools, and metrics to monitor asset health, and mitigate system risk to drive organizational efficiencies, extend asset life, maintain/improve system reliability, and reduce equipment failures and emergent/emergency work.
Within the community of Asset Optimization & Performance Management Community, we will pursue the following Advancement Groups:
