According to the World Bank, unplanned power outages leave homes and businesses in many emerging countries without electricity for 15 or more days per month. In the United States, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) reports that the average power system suffers downtime and is unable to meet demand six percent of the time.

“Data science plays a critical role in improving the reliability of the electricity supply to consumers,” said Russell Stokes, president & CEO of GE Power. “With GE Digital’s Asset Performance Management software, our M&D Center in Atlanta will further enhance its ability to forecast and prevent power outages worldwide.”
