Data science company E Source has helped dozens of utilities calculate vegetation risk scores across transmission lines, allowing them to cut costs, improve system reliability, and optimize crew work plans and schedules.

The key to achieving operational efficiencies with vegetation management is granularity at the transmission and distribution level. Our vegetation management module—part of the E Source GridInform (PDF) suite of asset life-cycle management solutions—provides a current-state assessment of the vegetation in an area, all the way down to the polygon scale. That means you get a literal “view from above” that shows individual trees mapped onto the grid with data collected from lidar scans.
