"Remote manner really effectively. So i think the pandemic like most people say has accelerated that transformation. I think it now created new questions on how his technology play into this in the future. Having not only just maintain your operations in eighth guard against unforeseen future disruptions. But how do we use that to serve our customers in cheap armed you. I think we're going to keep reinventing as it relates to in this space between with our teams in business partners will continue to evolve as we in this yet. It's really it's interesting. You say that bonnie the increase in demand for digital increasing appreciation frankly for the work that great leaders like yourself have been doing for years not as though you were preparing for this no one could fully aware of what was afoot as twenty nineteen became twenty twenty but it really It's interesting to hear you as many others have said this digital acceleration. That's happening and you see now too much greater extent you know. It leaders being asked to join boards or it leaders expanding their responsibilities. much more. Broadly as as its Nizing this is now such an important center for for for opportunity for organizations more generally speaking you know it's interesting and one other thing i wanted to talk to you about. Bonnie is You are a female cio. A growing sorority of cio's who are women and I wonder if you could reflect for a moment about sort of the state of women in technology so to say it's so great to see. I didn't know you know as it seems like a great number of other people that i'm seeing interviewing are women that have been great gains that have been made in recent years but i wonder if he can serve reflect on on where things stand for your perspective on that particular point i think just in general continues to evolve which is so great to see especially for somebody like news tact for my whole career. I think is. It's definitely becoming more of a diverse field for people who can innovate leaders. And it's awesome to see that. There's a lot of talented women now within the tech industry. And i think just drive in the partnership across the not only just utilities but the industries as a whole just that confidence that senior leaders of bringing authenticity in i think you know making from women. Perspective temporary can really significant contributions. We have for decades Where to see. It's now being noticed or leaking really good strides towards a more diverse and inclusive workforce. While i t has extraordinarily been a male dominated industry at definitely seen over my tenure that the tide is turning is in companies like duke energy. Really appreciate it. Celebrate that diversity. I think we should reflect the diverse communities that we serve in maximizing that equal opportunities for everybody so i think the challenges of the future just get more and more blacks in are critical to excess of solving them. Is this diverse skillset. Diverse perspectives diverse background. So i think the tech industry really awesome place to be right now. We need to continue to bring in more women in minorities into space said. I'm as you look to the future. And even a post pandemic future. After after we do again reached some sort of normalcy are there certain technologies that particularly excite. You are beginning to make their way on your roadmap bonnie. We talked about a number of friends but wondering if there any others you'd like to highlight sure i mean i think we from perspective Our mission is a smarter energy future for customers in our communities and now i think modernizing of our grid generating cleaner energy in expanding. Our gas structure are all efforts to Transparent transform our customer experience in for me all that relies on digital capabilities in technology. Modernisation is one of those trends. That really excites me. You know i think i think about modernizing dukes tech or polio in our footprint. This is everything from systems of records to systems of Differentiation to help in. I think in leveraging event driven architecture micro services in cloud. I think i'm going to play a major role in our ability to empower enable us to do this innovation and frankly integrate so that we can create new products and services to meet those goals so modernisation is definitely something that excites me. I think along with that comes to the future of a i read. I think we're just at the tipping point of of where i i really starts to drive. A change within our industry were doing in quite a few facets in things like in transitioning to our renewable energy in predicting kind of solar panel faults preventing power outages and giving customers insight into their energy usage. Things all those things using this Learning type technology. And i just i think there's so much more that we can go as it relates to them. I think you couple that with data and analytics talked about. There's so many solutions out there that if you just harnessed processed and analyzed all the data that you have those really you could drive significant intelligence out of that a move to start to move towards more deep learning really leveraging technology so i think those things coupled together along with something specific in the utility industry i would say is electric vehicles They will potentially be a game changer for our industry so if you think about distributed networks flexible storage in our ability to maintain reliability Carbonise grid those are real significant areas. That me about the future of technologies gallon brings together a couple of different experiences from your your presence in passed between the energy industry in the automotive industry you have more than a rooting interest In the stopped. Since you've been immersed in both yeah absolutely. I continue to root for both a utility in. The automotive industry is seeing them. Come together in of this partnership around. This is is really a collision which is great. That's fantastic will bunny tone. It's been great to speak with you today. Thank you so much for sharing. Your perspectives across oh diverse array of areas. That you and your team are impacting. Not only your business but your customer experience as well so thank you so much great conversation.

"It's part of everything we do now at core company i would say the date is probably the other piece of that. That is such a huge valuable commodity in the market today specifically as it relates to the digital economy. I think with analytics in tools and technology like artificial intelligence in shame learning capabilities. We're finding new ways to drive. Innovation manage the grade and make smart decisions. Things like drones and sensors smart meters cameras. All of those are just generating this massive amount of data that gives us competitive insight helps us to evolve just beyond wicklow. People see the traditional eighty. I think i think there's three main areas there around our assets. Our operations ultimately the experience that we great for the customer because it relates to assets. We're using that technology data to identify issues like a power plant before they've been happening performed predictive maintenance. This could be things of sensors on a lot of our equipment like a turbine generator. Or transformer where we previously had to pull out of operation do it on a subserve set schedule when something was working properly which to be really costly. Because you're essentially doing work. That may not be necessary if you take that coupled with historical data you get to the point. Q proactively may make repairs onto our facilities in only when they're necessary. I think it's a relates to just operations general Grits complex in the energy grid requires innovation right capabilities as we add more distributed resources to think of things like solar wind or battery as we add those to the grid. We use machine learning in the able to protect project. Manned enable mobility for field workers in ultimately optimize the output of a grid of things like we detect outages on the system in reroute power to our customers to maintain liability and as these systems learn and understand more about the outages in how to write. Just get smarter in faster over the over the course of time and all of that goes into our customer. Experience was with neater smart meters people's homes on appliances mobile apps. Using all of this data. I think from that perspective. It helps us better manage. Communications It gives us the most information on outages or prone on our power lines. Move them underground. If there's the those those are telling us that To share insights for their customers on how they even using rangy down almost the appliance that they're using the times they're using it in how that equates to helping them manage their costs keep the usage to a minimum the great review. Thank you thank you. Bonnie i Home in for a moment on this notion of lighthouse the innovation hub. And some of the free as you put it frameworks for innovation that opportunities for it and the rest of the organization to partner Can you talk a bit about how the evolution of it as it becomes a source of in a partner to the rest of the organization from an innovation perspective. The kinds of roles or skills that you've looked for or grown within the organization in order to deliver many of the innovative things you've just described i think is as we're thinking about the roles in the skill sets up i mentioned before workforce agility in kind of our our people being our biggest asset in. We've seen where their skills such as software engineering data analytics things of that nature we've gone to market and broadened Smart people as it relates to that and we're hearing with our existing workforce to help drive what that With that technology can help us deliver in the future and we think you have to take your employees assets and you get up skill them cross skill than giving them opportunities to learn of partnering them with people from the from the outside that we've brought in allows us to kind of build. This technology bench was really specific. Tools tool sets in Things that will help us enable the future of our technology and delivering to our organization. They're interesting and i know you've you've put a lot of thought into how people best work together and Obviously that's taken a different complexion during the course of the pandemic. I believe you are bo. Taking this from our homes for instance. No doubt many of your colleagues are also working from home these days taco about what you've learned over the past six months and what you've some so what you believe might be the the learnings that you carry forward even when we reach some sort of new kind of normalcy whatever form that might take pre pandemic you know while while the transformation of redoubts eight initially started in traditional technology areas truly begun to permeate across the entire business in all of our operations. We think about collaboration. In digital transformation. We think that bringing those can cross functional team mates together that bring different skills. Perspectives allows us to create a race. The new tools new ways of thinking new ways of working. And i think if you think about our innovation that we created we set at space up specifically needed to drive the and deliver that collaboration. And we're focused on you know identifying deploying digital solutions when. They're needed the most and where they're needed. The most i think is talking before as we're thinking about are not made in the skills in how wanna reskill them exposing them to these new ways to solve problems in focusing them on the problems in using these tools and technologies to think differently on high even go about determining what the problem is solving the problem. Is we think that. Collaboration is is really the game. Changing the differentiator Think about how. We're preparing voice. Were that technology change. We're using tools such as you to me. That gives us courses by experts that cover various topics development transformations of design in reading of the traditional manners to information sessions and conformable hands on training classes. Instructional videos things of that nature depending on the scope in the nature of the change but nothing all in our were really just trying to give people exposure to different ways of working in the can take that back into their traditional day day to day activities and use those practices incriminate that across the organization as a whole i think as it relates to the pandemic so that was pre pandemic when you start to think about homeless pandemic that full people focused approach to our digital transformation. I think is set us up really well for the transition if you will to to the situation working in our which is remote. I think our teammates are more skilled than ever as it relates to the technology. Just a need to do it in order to continue to operate every day and think about how. You're going to get the work done when you're not in not traditional setting so seeing the leverage that technology new ways now just in a remote manner tapping into learning practices is been really great to see how continues to drive the productivity of the company. I think the foundational work were doing within. It that led up to this pandemic helped us in way between infrastructure that we put in place in some of the cloud technology decisions that we made allowed us to have. Thousands of employees can In this.

Maybe you can take a moment and described your purview issue. Yeah in a duke. Energy is one of the largest energy providers in the suite provide electricity to about seven point. Eight million customers across states in gas to what would six million customers in five states in. It's never been a more exciting time to be in the energy industry. Transforming and we think duke is is leading the way on that transformation in a working towards really aggressive targets to reduce our carbon and implemented a digital strategy. Were meeting customer. Needs with new and interesting ways innovative ways and also top. Us renew a renewable energy provider. No spent the past twenty. Three years of my. It career process many industries from Talented financial services automotive in most recently with utilities Many facets of it from operations to deliberate abroad managed digital transformation. Think all of that is molded. Prepared me to take the role. Here at duke is cio little over the past year. The purview is is threefold for me. it's the traditional. It functions like operations delivery and the digital transformation which is focused on delivering cleaner energy system. That's more distributed mogul in nature and intelligent in the new for us for me growing the. It teammates like most companies. Employees are the biggest asset. We have is we take this. Transformation journey in shifting employees to meet the needs a doing that at scale as pretty imperative so some laser focused on shaping that workforce in the culture that ultimately drives the innovation maintains the agility that we need in this digital error so as my role evolves which is the best part of what i do.

And i have to imagine that there is a a data in a digital component to it that you and your team get involved in. Can you talk a little bit further about some of the aspects of how you bring that to life sure digital transformation and data. I think are the two key components from transformation perspective agitates the spotlight more than ever not just because cove in the fact that there's so much reliance now on technology is research work from home but because it just the pace in which technology innovation and digitisation just driving within the market and i think we do recognize pretty early on that technologies foundational not only to our business but also how dry our operations at every level of the company in. It's it's no longer in to have back in to enable the enterprise digital transformation program which we call lighthouse a basically built an innovation hub to scale those practices across the entire company. Not just it. In that framework cloud the it department to partner with our business to drive innovation ensure transformations ingrained in in our core. And.

"First time only time I can remember at Duke Energy Convention Center were literally 100 or so people showed up to yell and scream at you guys with bullhorns and everything else telling you that Cincinnati police should be re imagined, meaning blow things up. There's no more captains and colonels. There's no more sergeants air captain. None of that stuff. We're going to be called. I don't know. Ah, liaisons or assistant or whatever, and a whole bunch of other stuff, too, as well. That movement stands where, and contrast to what you're doing. Yeah, I mean, ah, Lot of those people will show up to counsel today and hopefully a lot of people on the other side will show up today. I hope we have a lot of security and police there to take care of the situation. I think a lot of people will come on zoom today because they might be nervous. But, yeah, I can tell you for every person who spoke A two public comment. I had 20 people contact me to the contrary, people were just scared to come in. I had friends who were in line that night who were asked what they were going to say and when they said We're going to be. We're going to say nice things about police. They were screamed at and told you better get the hell out of here. You better not say that, and I mean, that's not an open public forum, so we'll see what people allowed to be said today. Right, Right. You're supposed to be allowed to speak your mind and in America and you may disagree with you may hide hate it may enrage you. But guess what Unpopular speech is protected the prop the speech that these these individuals and the marches and everything else may be unpopular lot of circles. But we support a diversity of viewpoints. Which is funny because this is the very pro diversity crowd as long as you agree with their version of diversity. Exactly. Yeah, we'll see how it handled today. Hopefully, people are not able to scream and interrupt each other on either side. And if people are nervous to come in to speak on behalf of the police, they can speak on zoom, so there's no risk. But here's the problem with these with these optics, right, As you have 100 people show up, which is unusual for a council meeting the point you have to have the Duke Energy Convention Center. It's 100 or so people who are very, very vocal generally, very young or people are stuck in the 19 sixties early 19 sixties on DH that is the screen for policing reimagine which would totally dismantled police defund the police. All of these things, and I'm not saying you can't reform the police. But de funding is ridiculous, especially in this current climate That's largely 100, very vocal people and maybe a couple of their friends. I think if this thing got on the ballot because initially it was a referendum that that didn't dating enough signatures to get on the ballot, which is also telling, But if it did I think this thing would go have gone down in flames, which I would have rather seen that because then the people truly would have spoken. Yeah, I don't know. It depends which election it heads. If it goes on in nature for the mayoral primary, it'll really affect who is picked for the mayoral primary. If it goes on in November. I mean, Anything could happen any November. I had no idea so, but I mean a lot of these people who want to defund the police. It's not necessarily that people's safety re imagine that's a very extreme. They just wanted to take a huge hunk of the police budget and put it toward social services, which I do not want to dio. Well, here's the thing you know, mental health and I have railed on this a lot times. I don't disagree with them and saying Hey, listen. Mental health has been so woefully funded for generations. Now we are reaping what we sew it. In some of these cases, the number these cases you see mentally disturbed individuals in contact with police. That's that the fall of the police that's the fallen while politicians like yourself voters like me the demand of this kind of thing. We have to be able to come up with a way to solve the mental health crisis in this country if you need to put some mental health professionals in the streets. Are on a shift with with cops. That's fine. But I guess the question is, why does it have to come at the expense of police? If it's about improving police? Why would we take money away from them? Instead of taking money from something else, If it's that important Yeah. I mean, I agree. I mean, the the point of the city government is to provide basic services and.

the **** but nonetheless they had a public meeting with people on the way and where the money should go relative to a Cincinnati police well over calls to defund the police many people believing cops are the problem the unions to probably go to disband we gotta define them we got a break them up a little bit we gotta change things and since that even though Cincinnati is not like Atlanta it's not like Minnesota it's not like Louisville it's Cincinnati we're farther along than they are does that make sense to break things up and joined me on the show this morning to talk about all this is sergeant Dan Hils of course head of the fraternal order police to Cincinnati queen civilized sixteen I Dan good morning aria on internet doing fine I am I'm a little I I'm the irony of the situation down I'm sure you were going to comment on what you saw last night last night at the budget meeting how that devolved into almost anarchy in a way to is that the ignorance of the mob is galling because five years ago today you're making a call to to fund the police all police are bad people like you are horrible people Danny unions bad everything's bad bad bad bad bad as five years ago today mandate trade Peter Homans left his mother's house it about a little bit after nine o'clock so one to five years in exactly one hour ago almost he left his mom's house with a gun he had been drinking we've been drinking is upset because his girlfriend had filed rape charges against him the night before he was a wanted man by Cincinnati police he essentially called nine one one so there's a man walking around Madisonville with a gun he was a man with a gun at this point a a probation officer showed up he heard the radio call go out for a man with a gun he saw a tree Pierre how many new trade comments had a conversation with them or did not let on that he was the one who called in or had the gun at which point an officer Sonny Kim had responded to the same run and it's sunny Kim approach because I guess he knew Trippier Hamann's as well the approach and to de escalate the situation is they're trying walks up to him in the tray Pearman stepped out from behind his own mother and fired several shots in the direction of sunny Kim one going through the side of his fast in almost a freak like shot because the vast goes around the vast somehow got under way the armpit is indestructible your to Sonny Kim died five years ago today the day after yesterday we had the the the I. as the the maniacs of the Duke energy convention center who didn't want to hear anyone else talk except the echo chamber in which they live the irony is not lost on me today Dan well for me I guess since bridges down I'll be happy to comment about the the idiots last night but let me first talk about Sonny Kim so we can place you but we're just because you know we heard a lot and we should we sure about George Floyd we've heard about it land we've heard about local Brianna Taylor I get that we should those are important there is a dialogue to have but this sunny Kim deserve any less dialogue because of what he chose to do for a living I say no because the sunny Kim we heard about in the aftermath of his death was an honorable respectful polite but more of a use of a tripadvisor but that he cared about the community massively serve that even Trippier Harmon's new the guy he was known and loved by this community but especially by sadly has three kids and wife you left behind from my perspective I of first of all I would get out there that I I believe I know Sonny now better than I knew him down because he and I did not work very often together we we adopted in district four together in the very early parts are clear and then I would only see sunny occasionally here or there I did not know Sonny well that day but I'd like to go back to that day and and and give you my experiences because it was it was something that was you know although the city and and and and and I'll always remember it I was working on the other side of town I was the I feel is a senior sergeant and district three day shift that day and I heard the all county broadcaster out alternative systems announcer down and I died I was out of reflex I I I started to head that way I notify the other sort of work and that he was in charge and I was I was headed that way we have our computer aided dispatch so somebody you're coming in on July I also saw that I was on the run and using some common sense realized I wasn't going to be to the scene to have any effect on them and order that I go to UC hospital on and and be in charge there are waiting outside and others to arrive and and so I got there before me was sunny arrive by ambulance and I was there is Sonny pulled up when they pulled up with Sonny and I watched as they very hurriedly took some money off the back of the ammonites called them right into the drama back and there in the trauma bay they want about a very very aggressive attempt to save someone's life.

"Nearly three thousand three thousand people did not die. Tweeted Trump who praised his response to the disaster in Puerto Rico, where sixty thousand homes still don't have roofs. Fast forward to hurricane Florence in North Carolina. There Trump surveyed the damage and said to a man who had lost his home, at least you got a nice boat out of the deal. A yacht had washed ashore on the storm surge and slammed into the man's house. Is this your boat or did it become your boat dramas? The man who said it wasn't his well. Maybe it is now said Trump adding that he'd have someone check on that with twenty five people dead from the storm in North Carolina, but Trump went on and on about that boat even asking about it days later this boat wiped out or not as Trump adding, wouldn't want to cross the ocean in it. This boat Trump said to reporters, I don't know what happened, but this boat just came here and the, you know who's boat it is they don't know who's voted is even in the midst of mass destruction. The man appreciates good yacht. The president also inquired about lake Norman. Because he has a golf club there. Before the hurricane, there were some nine million hogs in North Carolina producing ten billion gallons of waste each year. This effluence was stored in open air lagoons more than three thousand lagoons that were fed bacteria to turn the waste into fertilizer in the flooding that followed hurricane Florence, those waste lagoons overflowed and that waste and fertiliser began to spread the carcasses of nearly three and a half million chickens and turkeys and tens of thousands of other animals and tens of thousands of other animals are also rotting in those floodwaters which continue to threaten the state today. Aside from the obvious health risks for humans, the fertilizer contamination will prompt the growth of algae of the sword that has threatened for two beaches, this summer in a red tide public health officials, call it a toxic soup there in North Carolina. But that's just the beginning. The southern energy giant Duke Energy had been storing, toxic coal, ash in pits that were also breached by flooding from Florence that too, as spread across the water that's reportedly spread in eastern North Carolina. Duke Energy says the ash did not make it to the Cape fear river, but environmentalists dispute that while we all wait the official test results from the state Duke had been in the process of transferring that coal ash from those open pits to Lyme pit landfills, where the toxic material could be more safely stored complying with a regulation that Duke Energy had resisted for years, four years ago, Duke Energy allowed thirty nine thousand tons of coal ash to spill into the Dan river and eventually pleaded guilty to criminal negligence. Outside Wilmington, North Carolina, a nuclear power plant reported an unusual event after floodwaters had damaged that facility. The reactors were in what a Nuclear Regulatory Commission spokesman called a hot standby mode, three shutdown, adding the plant is safe and stable, and that floodwaters had not entered the facility and therefore did not threaten important equipment. So there's that politicians in North Carolina have not only ignored the news of climate change. They passed a law banning policies based on that science, they made it illegal for state officials to do anything based on the science of climate chains ordering them to use, only records from the past. It's as if they believe there's no such thing as climate change there in North Carolina with that nice long shoreline. And science is being ignored by North Carolina's Republican lawmakers, including the news. The North Carolina coast line is among one of the most vulnerable in the country to rising sea levels. They will then no doubt be surprised when they see the rising insurance bills and the falling property values..

The Grid of the Future
"Welcome to the hats mysolar podcasts providing off grid solutions to on grid world. Hey, everybody and welcome to the hack mysolar podcast. This is Sean mills, and today we're going to talk about the grid of the future. I was at actually over the past year. I've been at several power generation conferences where I've had conversations with people from companies like Duke Energy Southern Company, which owns Alabama, Georgia Power, Mississippi power and Gulf power. And let's see who else Amarin over in the mid west eighty s all these different generation companies don't deal with the ones out west, very much, but Dynegy luminescent over in Texas. All of these guys are saying the same thing, the grid of the futures coming, and it's going to look a lot different than what we have right now, and it's going to surprise a lot of people how different than it is. And so when I was at this last one down in Alabama. I was talking to a guy and he was telling me that both Alabama Power and Georgia Power are creating smart neighborhoods. So these these companies that make their money off of converting nuclear reactions and coal dug from the ground to energy or to to heat, which then creates team, which think creates energy. These guys are investing quite heavily in renewables and now in what they're calling the grit of the future. And so I thought it'd be interesting to talk through some of that stuff today. If you go to smart neighbor dot com, that's the website for this program that they're doing, and it's really neat. I mean, it's it's super high efficiency appliances, smart houses, you know where things are voice activated, and you're frigerator tells you when you're running low on milk and you can change your thermostat from your cell phone while you're at work all of these things. And then it's also they're all the houses have solar panels on them. The neighborhood itself has a natural gas powered backup generator, and then there's a micro grid for the neighborhood and what's neat about that micro grid is it allows properties that are generating an excess of electrically from their solar panels to take that and put it onto the microbes so that another person in their neighborhood can utilize that without having to pull any electric city off of the the bigger overall grit. And so this is sensually creates a fully self sufficient neighborhood. We've talked about self sufficiency a lot and how you know solar thermal solar photovoltaic systems can be part of this self sufficiency. But this is a system that that extends out from just the house it self and goes to the neighborhood. And I think about what that might do for community. One of the things that have. Happened. When we, you know, Bramble to take these vast amounts of energy from certain places in the country, transport him on railroads to other places in the country generate electricity. And then through the the magic of alternating current transfer that electricity all over the United States and create these massive grids that with with step down transformers and all these different things. One of the things that that did was is it created the ability for humans to exist without community a created, the ability for people to to, you know, either either moved far away from from other people and still have access to all the things that they really wanted or to, you know, to move out of the city and away from the customs around there. Being everyone under neighborhood, knowing each other and talking to each other and helping each other out and getting together for cookouts and things like that. You know that those are pretty strong customs in the in the cities. And when people started moving out to the suburbs a little below that stick around. But you know, by the way the seventies in the eighties, you weren't talking to your neighbor in the suburb that much. And by the two thousands, you might not even know your neighbors Nate in. So what I'm hoping is I look at some of these technologies and one of the things that I think about is if you're buying electrobi- from me
