Optimize your energy resources 

Generating renewable energy depends on reliably forecasting the weather and its impact on wind and solar power generation. The IBM Environmental Intelligence Suite utilizes data and advanced analytics from The Weather Company®, an IBM Business, to create the most accurate weather forecasts in the world, allowing power companies to plan generation and energy management schedules more effectively and efficiently.

The suite also helps utilities maintain the assets that deliver this power to consumers, by monitoring and modeling the vegetation growth that threatens power lines. With advanced and customizable alerts, the IBM Vegetation Management solution helps utilities maintain and repair the power lines before outages occur.
