A big challenge electric utilities will be facing in the foreseeable future is a workforce that is rapidly retiring and the loss of institutional knowledge. This will create a vulnerability in the electric grid, especially during widespread power outages where recovery efforts relies on a team of well-trained and experienced personnel. During these critical situations, it will be inefficient and time consuming to have a person with the relevant experience physically travel to several locations to support recovery. This issue will be exacerbated with a shortage of experienced personnel. This subtopic is looking for innovative technology solutions, such as augmented reality or virtual reality, which can be adapted to enable a small number of experienced-personnel to supervise or train the electric utility workforce of the future. For example, a potential solution would allow one person to remotely supervise multiple crews in widespread locations by virtually moving from one crew to another in a matter of seconds. Other potential applications include the ability to access information in the field, in real-time, needed to perform work such as virtual instructions or manuals; the ability to “see” hard to access data and information; and the ability to rapidly process information and other digitized data. The aforementioned applications will allow both experienced and less experienced personnel to perform work more efficiently. $4,000
