In this podcast, GE Energy's Paul Wilson discusses some of the challenges of implementing a nationwide smart grid system. "With Smart Grid, utilities are facing this massive amount of data, orders of magnitude worth of data, that they have not had to deal with before," says Wilson. But if any company is up to the challenge, GE certainly should be. As the company likes to say, it offers equipment from "turbines to toasters." Wilson also discusses where geospatial technology can truly impact data management and process improvements for power companies.
