Andy Hesselbach, VP, Construction, System Modernization, Peoples Gas

On March 1, 2018, Chicago Advanced Energy held its stakeholder breakfast at the offices of Holland & Knight. The event brought AEG’s stakeholder members to discuss the topics of Energy Resiliency and Critical Infrastructure.

This installment of the AEG Podcast features Andy Hesselbach, VP of Construction for People’s Gas. Andy started his presentation noting the technological advances that have improved the construction and maintenance of gas infrastructure.  One example is the City of Chicago’s dotMaps, which is a web application based on Google maps that provides details on all work happening in the city, including access to schedules, permits, and the ability to load drone footage and real-time photos.  This and other technologies will continue to aid the construction and maintenance of resilient infrastructure through cost and times saving benefits.
