Prescient Transmission Systems is a consulting firm that specializes in analyzing difficult challenges and transformative opportunities that arise in the electric energy delivery system. When electric utilities identify concerns, Prescient works with them to create models and provide unique solutions. Our senior staff has over 50 years’ experience working with electric utility companies and energy production facilities. Because of our strong background in the industry, and our drive to prepare the grid for a future with a changing climate, we provide unique perspectives on obstacles and opportunities facing electric utilities today.
Whether your goal is to prevent faulted power lines from igniting wildfires, to prepare your system for widespread commercial electric vehicle charging, to create a comprehensive model for distributed renewable energy integration, to minimize the risk of blackouts in your service area, or to enhance the physical security of vital grid components, Prescient has you covered. Our services include risk assessments and management strategies based on realistic models that include input from material scientists, equipment manufacturers, environmentalists, and others with experience in the electric utility industry.
We consult on everything from single transmission line assessments to large scale system remodels, including model validation testing. We have an innovative strategy for optimizing the integration of rooftop solar panels and electric vehicles into the energy balance equation. Our staff has developed alternative billing strategies that minimize risks created by climate change, electrification, electric vehicles, rooftop solar panels, and intermittent renewable energy production. Prescient also offers customizable courses for electric utility staff on next generation concepts.
Prescient looks at situations from the perspective of electric utilities and stakeholders, including consumers, regulators, government agencies, and news media. Our focus is long term outcomes rather than near term fixes. We understand the financial, technical, and political considerations of electric utilities and other stakeholders. Prescient’s staff is excited to work with utilities to adapt and prepare for challenges that are occurring as our climate continues to change.
