Utilities, oil and gas companies, energy project developers, transmission and distribution companies, and energy service providers are using Big Data to modernize and manage their operations. Big Data is facilitating the proliferation of distributed generation and energy storage, while improving demand-side management. It is also being used by energy companies to detect, mitigate and prevent losses and inefficiencies. But along with its benefits, Big Data also raises concerns for the energy industry regarding privacy, security, safety and reliability, disclosure requirements, and more.
