  • Macro Drivers: Three global trends will drive decision making across all industries over the next 5 years: The Global Economic Crisis Resulting in changes to credit and funding sources and increasing pressure to reduce costs Climate Change and Environment Concerns Climate change and the environment has become an enduring public policy priority Rapid Technological Advances and Availability We are at a turning point in the history of information and consumer technologies Industry Drivers: For the utilities industry, three drivers will predominate: Increased Reliability and Power Quality, combined with Increased Pressures on Rates Deliver higher quality, more reliable power, while keeping rates low Growth in Renewable Generation and Distributed Resources and a focus on conservation Manage more green energy and a more bidirectional, less predictable network Deliver energy management to customers, not just energy Need for new business models

    6. 6. © 2009 IBM Corporation Network transformation challenges As IT and power systems networks converge, traditional security risks impact power infrastructure C O N V E R G E N C E Source: Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)
    7. 7. © 2009 IBM Corporation Consolidated Operations Challenge - How to manage the explosion of event data emanating from the increasingly complicated operating environment and to put context around the business service impact of silo’d event feeds? This challenge applies equally to the Comms Network, the Datacenter environment, and the Intelligent Utility Network (Comms and IED’s). Operational Outcome – leverage the event data coming from the silo’s of monitoring and management by placing fault conditions in a wider business service context. Identify gaps in monitoring and understand the interdependencies in play and the Root Cause/Symptom relationships to allow prioritization of effort on actionable incidents. Business Benefits – Improved Operational efficiency allowing for a leaner Operational group (headcount and Tools) whilst delivering tangible improvements in cost reduction and lowered MTTR with associated outage claim exposure. Average cost to roll a truck in Victoria is approx $1000/day. In Queensland it is closer to $2000/day. British Telecom ROI using IBM Netcool Technology: Consolidated 27 NOCs into 2 Saved costs on s/w, h/w, facilities, 80% staff reduction Reduced MTTR by 50% Reduced fault rectification costs by factor of 10 Events reduction of 2,500:1 Reduced OPEX of £736,000 a year 7
    8. 8. © 2009 IBM Corporation SmartGrid Management Challenge - How to address the management burden of the increasingly complex, IP enabled SmartDevices being deployed into the Grid? Often, these devices perform key protection roles such as Safety Switching and are typically subject to Regulatory rigor resulting in more frequent change management and audit obligations. Operational Outcome – Single, Scalable tool to manage appropriate Intelligent devices within a multi-vendor, heterogeneous SmartGrid in a controlled and timely manner. Repeatable configuration templates and “Golden Masters” allow for rapid, error free, auditable management of devices located in potentially Geographically dispersed and remote locations. Drive change through automation via Consolidated Ops. Business Benefits – Improved Operational efficiency through automation and consolidated Tools framework whilst ensuring Regulatory Requirements can be met and measured. Minimize OH&S exposure through reduced Truck Rolls ($1000/day Victoria, $2000/day Queensland)/Physical Pole Climb and litigation. $19.7m Compensation for Beechworth Fire $22m sought from Victorian Government in Kilmore East Fire Class Action Culpable for death of 119 people (out of 173 total) 8
    9. 9. © 2009 IBM Corporation SmartGrid Analytics Challenge - How to leverage the event data exposed from the grid for Automation, Reporting, OH&S and Asset Management purposes. Also how to exploit asset data held in repositories to add additional context to faults. Operational Outcome – Utilise event data such as Weather Station notifications to drive automation and for rapid identification of localized concerns. Exploit PQ event data to isolate and target failing infrastructure and provide additional layers of rigor around field maintenance (isolation). Provide quantifiable service quality data to the business. Business Benefits – Improve operational efficiency through minimising user intervention in smart grid device management. Targeted maintenance allows for pre-emptive, preventative asset management moving from inefficient and expensive scheduled inspection. Better exploit event data and reporting capabilities for PQ potentially assisting with PUF leading to tangible financial incentives from State Government. Minimise OH&S exposure and associated penalties. Victorian distributor reports multi million $credits/month through PUF reporting 9
