The need to ensure that the supply of energy remains secure, reliable and affordable remains undiminished, as ever more sustainable ways to satisfy demand for energy are established. Technological innovation and lifestyle changes – like the use of solar panels in the home or electric vehicles - are also impacting our energy demand. And, as the way we consume energy changes and our opportunity to actively participate in the energy system grows, so do the demands on the infrastructure that delivers energy to homes and businesses.
CGI joined the digital innovation journey of Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) early on. We have supported numerous smart grid innovation programmes that are helping electricity distribution businesses to understand what it will mean to transform from being a network operator to become a system operator.
We are helping our clients understand how they can generate value from the ever increasing volumes of data available to them from the growth in digital technologies throughout the energy system. We achieve this by integrating and implementing their digital systems - focusing on the acquisition, management and analysis of data; delivering a consistent single view of the network that enables operational decision making, helping whole system optimisation.
