CenterPoint Energy and Direct Energy have joined the University of Houston to form the Electric Power Analytics Consortium with hopes of enhancing current models used to predict the number of electric outages due to storms and better serve customers.

The consortium is led by Zhu Han, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Cullen College of Engineering. As lead investigator, he will focus on data-driven solutions that help customers.

Han said his predictive model can provide CenterPoint Energy with information pertaining to the damage that may be caused by a hurricane based on the intensity and path of the storm. This information would supplement CenterPoint Energy’s storm planning and restoration strategies.
