New Technologies Drive Operational Performance by Connecting Smart Stations to Distribution Networks
Natural Gas distribution companies have been historically slow to adopt new technologies, especially so-called “Smart” technologies, in their networks. Their counterparts in electric utilities, process plants, and even gas transmission have widely adopted connected components and solutions to quickly give them access to data to make decisions, improve the safety of their systems, and provide them with the functionality they need to improve their operations. Recently, the Natural Gas distribution segment has begun to catch up by adopting these types of technologies to enjoy similar results. Solution providers in the industry have developed customized systems for customers and when coupled with a digital ecosystem, they can drive substantial value for gas utility companies.
