Event details


Wildfires & Risk Mitigation Conference


The Benson Hotel, Portland, OR


May 1820, 2020

Designed for and by utility professionals facing the wildfire challenge head on. With lives at stake, the consequences of incomplete wildfire planning and management impact so much more than just the existence of the utility. This forum will help participants advance the maturity of their wildfire programs and initiatives through peer-to-peer dialogue, engagement opportunities, and holistic planning and strategies with proven success.

StormGeo has partnered with eSmart Systems, HVL and European Space Agency to develop GridEyeS, a satellite framework aimed to give electric utilities and transmission companies more accurate risk assessments, faster outage management and better restoration strategies. The project team combines the expertise in satellite images and remote sensing from StormGeo, machine learning and drone imagery from eSmart Systems, and data science and power systems from HVL.

Join Torleif Markussen Lunde, in session 701 on May 20, 2020 from 1:00PM - 1:45PM, as he discusses the challenges and exciting applications of the project for vegetation management in his session "Reducing Wildfire Risks And Grid Disturbances with AI Based Integrated Satellite & Drone Vegetation Inspection"
