Current status & future state
Today’s electric utilities operate in a dynamic environment. Changing conditions in the economic, technical and regulatory arenas introduce challenges and concerns across the board. At the same time, electric utility providers seek to deliver the most reliable power possible to their customers and optimize the use of limited resources--all while providing suitable return to investors and key stakeholders. Effective management and sharing of information is a key driver for reliable, cost-efficient performance in complex organizations.
Aging Infrastructure and System Resiliency and Reliability
Managing a utility’s infrastructure presents a variety of challenges. Power infrastructure is closely tied to network reliability and a utility’s financial performance. However, much of the North American energy infrastructure was constructed in the 1950s and 1960s with a 50 year life expectancy. With aging infrastructure come increased maintenance costs and more frequent outages affecting system reliability and capacity issues. And with many electric utility networks spread over large areas, it’s also difficult to service and maintain network assets effectively and efficiently. If electric utilities are to operate effectively and reliably, they need accurate, up-to-date information on the location and condition of their critical network assets. That’s in addition to greater attention being paid to aging equipment, maintenance practices, vegetation management and outage management and response.
92% of all service interruptions come from distribution systems

Innovative network and asset management solutions that drive efficiencies in planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance.
To help electric transmission and distribution utilities address the major challenges of today and tomorrow, Trimble offers comprehensive and scalable state-of-the-art solutions for electric utilities to optimize planning, construction, operations and maintenance of the grid.
Trimble solutions capture and manage network information from the field to the office and back and make it readily available through innovative mapping and visualization tools to multiple functional roles and disciplines across the utility. Trimble solutions also support a number of utility workflows through tailored, modular industry applications that address critical utility functions from planning and construction to operations and maintenance.
Additionally, from data collection to analytics and risk modeling, and prioritized action planning to digitally supported field work execution, Trimble solutions for end-to-end Vegetation Management deliver functional information to help utilities better manage risk posed by vegetation-related encroachment and outages through a system to manage the complete utility vegetation management cycle.
