Weather information is critical to
maintaining the reliable supply of
electricity and the integrity of the grid.
It is more important given growing
demand for energy, pressure on costs,
and the strain of intermittent wind and
solar generation on the grid.
Weather and environmental
information influence many utility
decisions and actions within the
energy industry every day of the year
such as:
Vaisala has been helping utilities
develop weather-related solutions for
decades – combining an understanding
of your business with our expertise in
weather.
Partnering with Vaisala and relying
on its professional services enables
our customers to increase efficiency
of daily operations and allows them to
concentrate on their core activities.
The response to severe weather
events that disrupt electrical
services, such as lightning, high
winds, and icing.
From sensors that monitor moisture
in oil, to weather measurement
equipment, to the development of
sophisticated decision support systems
that improve transmission, generation
and commercial activities, Vaisala will
work with you to implement turnkey
solutions that increase reliability and
efficiency.
Maintenance, operation and support
services include:
Vaisala is a global leader in weatherrelated solutions. For more than
70 years we have been developing
environmental measurement systems
to improve the understanding of global
weather phenomena. We believe
in a world where environmental
observations improve daily life. Better
measurement, greater predictability,
fewer unpleasant surprises. Vaisala
continues to improve weathercritical operations in air and ground
transportation, industrial processes
and a wide range of industries
worldwide.
The inherent problems associated with
establishing new generation facilities
and transmission lines, has utilities
looking to maximize the capacity of
existing assets.
Environmental sensitivity and
dependency on fossil fuels have seen
the industry employ initiatives to
reduce carbon emissions and face
the challenge of integrating weather
dependant wind and solar generation.
The traditional 10 and 30 year climate
averages can no longer be relied upon
and this uncertainty will impact energy
demand, severe weather management
and transmission design.
