Geographic information system (GIS) technology allows utility managers to organize their activities according to a principle natural to their business: geography. So whether it's an electric company restoring power after a catastrophe, a planning agency connecting residential subdivisions to city services, or a natural gas transporter extending its pipeline through ecologically sensitive countryside, GIS has emerged as the tool of choice.

GIS is also the tool for managing the fallout from deregulation, which is transforming the energy industry just as it transformed the telecommunications industry in the 1980s. Today's successful energy service businesses apply information technology to everything from managing facilities and system load analysis to generating work orders and dispatching service technicians.

Enterprise GIS for Energy Companies presents these dozen case studies from the trenches:

  • South Carolina Electric & Gas
  • Bonneville Power Administration
  • AlintaGas (Australia)
  • Southern Company
  • New York State Electric & Gas
  • Reliant Energy
  • Williams Gas Pipeline
  • Colorado Springs Utilities
  • Electricté du Liban (Lebanon)
  • Southern Californa Gas
  • Public Service Company of New Mexico
  • Svenska Kraftnat (Sweden)

This richly illustrated volume is ideal for executives and technical managers in energy services industries who want to manage their facilities more cost effectively, find new markets, and better serve their customers.
