Flying High: The Journey to Improved Asset & Vegetation Management

Released in October 2021, inside UIIC’s first white paper, you’ll find insights from the people that are at the leading edge of leveraging new technologies and processes to leap forward in this exciting challenging new area of utility operations.

The electric utility industry, a stalwart of American and global industry, has had a difficult run over the last few years. Nowhere is this more apparent than in efforts to manage the massive $1.3 trillion T&D infrastructure. Advances in technology are now changing the asset inspection, vegetation management, and wildfire mitigation paradigm across the T&D systems and beyond.
