At NextEra Energy, the artificial intelligence (AI) is leveraged to see the invisible and nearly infinite data points that we use to generate clean, reliable, and affordable energy.
As the world’s largest generator of wind and solar energy, and an industry leader in battery storage, it provides America with:
- 30% lower energy bills than the national average
- 50% higher reliability than the national average
- 67% reduced CO2 emissions by 2025
The company believes there is an opportunity to improve the utilization of satellite imagery in the electric utility and gas pipeline industry. The improvement in these fields can offer the most reliable and affordable utility services. Recent advances in analytics and AI have opened new possibilities for analyzing data such as combining multiple images into a larger super-resolution image to improve feature detection.
You are required to apply statistical methods to detect utility industry features in publicly available satellite imagery. Additionally, some features are better visualized in invisible spectrum bands. A typical use of these improvements is to utilize the near-infrared spectrum to identify vegetation. All spectra from publicly available sources are allowed to be leveraged.
