Earlier this month, VIA’s Colin Gounden gave a presentation at Plug and Play’s Spring Summit 2019. Senior writer and analyst at GreenBiz, Katie Fehrenbacher, was in attendance and featured VIA in an article titled “Here’s Why Energy Companies Are Adopting AI”.
The article describes common problems that major energy companies face, such as the need for better quality data to run their businesses more efficiently, and how extreme weather is putting pressure on their infrastructure. Startups, like VIA, are using AI and machine learning to solve for these issues and help energy asset managers make smarter decisions to reduce cost and risk to their equipment. VIA was mentioned as a solution to help utilities better predict when transformers might be at risk in a disaster through the use of its blockchain-based application, Trusted Analytics Chain™ (TAC™).
In March, VIA was selected for the Spring 2019 cohort of Plug and Play’s Energy and Sustainability accelerator program.
