So you think you know what Big Data is? Think Again!


Presented by: Doug Houseman, Grid Modernization Lead, Burns & McDonnell

If we assume that The Green New Deal and Transactive Energy are will happen, we need to realize that no one is ready for what will happen in the next decade.

In a project to determine how many devices will play in the future grid, the numbers were staggering. This presentation will go thru what will be contributing to big data going forward and what that means from an aggregate number of data points, and requirements for processing, and the required system latency if we move to electrification, transactive energy, and 100% renewables. Simply staggering gaps exist between what happens today and what needs to happen.
