AiDash has launched a joint grid resilience offering with Schneider Electric. The new solution will address modern day infrastructure and environmental challenges, such as aging power grids, decarbonization and distributed power generation, vegetation growth inside rights-of-way, and the impact of storms and wildfires.The offering will  leverage their respective capabilities to improve data accuracy for safety, optimize asset maintenance and capital investments, improve vegetation management and pruning cycles, forecast natural disaster outages, and more. The full list of features includes:
  • Grid Information Management
  • Asset Inspection and Maintenance
  • Capital Project Management
  • Vegetation Inspection and Management
  • Storm and Wildfire Resilience
The grid resilience offering adds to AiDash’s list of products that leverage satellites and AI to help customers make more data-driven decisions. Its Intelligent Vegetation Management System (IVMS) helps utilities balance reliability, sustainability, and cost. The Disaster and Disruption Management System (DDMS) forecasts storms, wildfire outages, and damages to plan quickly and restore safely for utilities as well as energy companies, governments, and cities. The system works in near real-time before, during, and after a major natural disaster or extreme event.

“Utilities face challenges on multiple fronts: outdated infrastructure, increasing energy demands and the integration of clean energy, all while facing more extreme weather events. The most noticeable effect has been a 64% increase in power outages with the majority linked to weather and vegetation. AiDash’s satellite and AI-powered solutions are providing utilities an advantage to overcome these hurdles,” said Alexis Grenon, SVP Digital Grid, Schneider Electric.

In 2022, SE Ventures, a Silicon Valley-based global venture fund backed by Schneider Electric, led a $10M investment in AiDash, to drive climate resilience for utility assets. The funding is supporting AiDash’s satellite and AI-powered vertical SaaS products including IVMS, DDMS and Intelligent Sustainability Management System (ISMS).
