"Asset data is the closest thing we have to a crystal ball – and technology has suddenly opened up a whole wave of tools to allow us to harness it relatively cheaply and easily."

"Where are the biggest opportunities for the industry to optimise asset performance?
Digital management of distributed energy resources, from individual sites to entire systems"

"Within the electricity distribution sector, the largest impact on asset performance/management in the UK is probably CNAIM"

"The use of data on low voltage assets will drastically change the ability to manage their performance, and in turn the customer experience"
