AI for Renewables: 5 Steps to Unlock Actionable Insights from Alarm Data

AIRED ON: January 24, 2023

Webinar Summary

In the next decade, the world must double its installed capacity each year to meet demand and global sustainability targets. As the world’s dependence on renewable energy grows, renewable assets must meet higher standards of reliability and performance. Renewable Energy and Operators struggle to achieve high-performance operations at scale because of massive volumes of data, multiple data silos, manual processes, and inefficient workflows.


In this webinar, SparkCognition’s Rob Budny and Clara Midgley discuss best practices in data processing, data quality management, energy loss calculations, and workflow management that can enable you to scale your asset management practices profitably. Learn how your company can:

  • Increase operational efficiency with intelligent alarm processing.
  • Validate contractual obligations in real-time rather than retroactively.
  • Accurately and quickly quantify lost production because of alarms.
  • Enhance O&M practices with predictive analytics for multi-asset class fleets.
