DTN has the most comprehensive weather expertise in the world. With our global weather station network, we deliver the most hyper-local, accurate, and real-time weather intelligence available. But we’ve also taken it a step further and developed the industry’s first-ever machine learning solution that keeps utilities one step ahead. Our expert meteorologists, climatologists, and data analysts leverage information and data from your specific utility and service area, then combine that with the most accurate weather information available. This results in you having a clear view of your potential risks if – and when – the weather strikes.
We’ve invested in and delivered key analytics built specifically for your service area to provide operational intelligence to your power restoration teams and operations before the storm hits.
Our energy and utility weather expertise allows you to optimize the use of available grid capacity by understanding weather forecasts and making better predictions for the early detection of congestion. Avoid re-dispatching or grid breakdowns.
We don’t just help you before the storm, our weather insights can be relied on when you need to identify and inspect substations and other infrastructure that may have been struck by lightning. This means you are able to find and repair issues before a failure takes place.
DTN has 180 meteorologists, stationed throughout the world and backed by more than 20,000 weather stations in our global network. That’s how we provide the most accurate, hyper-local forecasts available in the world.
