Data Analytics Council

AEIC, Data Analytics

Areas of Focus

Utilities have more opportunities than ever to create tomorrow’s electric grid using today’s data. That’s where the Data Analytics Council comes in. This leading group of subject matter experts helps employees of AEIC member companies with incorporating analytics into their daily work and enabling more data-driven decision making.

The Data Analytics Council holds meetings each year, both in-person, and virtual, and maintains strong working partnerships with other industry associations including EPRI, IEEE PES, and UIIC. The Council recently published a white paper titled, Big Data & Advanced Analytics in Smart Grid Applications.

Members are typically vice presidents, directors, managers, supervisors, senior data analysts, and representatives from AEIC’s other committees.
