How Asset Management Changed for RWE After Implementing NarrativeWave

The day-to-day experience for renewable energy asset managers and engineers is often frenetic and stressful. Every day these individuals are doing their best to wade through the potential wind farm issues— it is a daily fire drill where asset managers never feel they truly have a handle on asset management, but are instead purely reactive.

Traditional Asset Monitoring vs NarrativeWave

Traditional monitoring for renewable energy assets is a must have. It does a great job of monitoring key performance indicators (KPIs) of assets so that operators can meet contractual obligations with their clients. This is a necessary function of asset management. That said, the data retrieved from traditional monitoring isn’t doing enough to improve performance.

Future-Proofing Water Operations with Technology

Since 2000, water costs in the United States have more than doubled, while federal funding for water infrastructure has continued to decrease — from $76 per person to only $11 per person. Today, state and local governments bear the burden of 96 percent of all public spending on water and wastewater utilities.
