Innovation, emerging technology, real-time data, better utilisation – what do these words mean at Unison?
To us, they are the foundation of our Smart Network – Unison’s vision for transforming the way we manage your electricity supply.
To do this, we’ve been researching, sourcing, testing and developing innovative technologies to install on our network, transforming parts of our traditional electricity distribution network to a Smart Network.
What is a Smart Network?
We define a ‘Smart Network’ as accessing and utilising ‘real-time’ data from our network to optimise decision making around network investment, improve our ability to use existing capacity in the network, enhance our lifecycle asset management policies and processes, and provide additional services on the modern network, all for the ultimate benefit of our customers and shareholders.
To do this, we continually research, trial and deploy the latest communications technologies and emerging trends in electricity distribution, to ensure our network really is ‘world-class’. It’s not about gold-platting our network, but about using the latest technology and knowledge to ensure our network can deliver the best possible quality of service while ensuring the network is cost-effective for our customers.
