The California ISO
The California Independent System Operator (ISO) manages electricity flow for 80 percent of California's power grid, delivering 289 million megawatt-hours annually to about 35 million consumers, more than 25,000 circuit-miles of power lines. It uses Space-Time Insight's software for situational intelligence, allowing it to correlate and analyze massive volumes of data from multiples sources—including weather feeds, sensors, metering equipment and more—with visual displays that help users see and understand how to optimize the use of renewable energy sources, balance power supply and demand across the grid, and quickly respond to potential crises.
