Power generators across the globe are facing new and more complex challenges than ever before. Mounting pressure for energy companies to reduce their emissions, minimize their carbon footprint, and increase demand reliability — as well as shifting business and consumer preferences — means that new, proactive solutions are needed now. One such solution that is not new to the industry but has yet to match the pace of others is artificial intelligence (AI). Historically, power generators have lagged behind other industries in the adoption of AI. A variety of implementation barriers are responsible for this. Here, we’ll explore these barriers and how the right AI solution can help power generators overcome them in a prioritized, proactive manner. Griffin’s COS has a proven track record of maximizing performance as existing systems have demonstrated 0.5% to 1% improvement in heat rate and reduction in emission rates in excess of 20%.
