Around the world, it’s clear that a paradigm shift is taking place – power grids are transforming into smart grids that are more transparent, more interactive, and more environmentally friendly than ever before. With the Smart Grid Compass, we offer safe navigation towards the network of the future.
Smart Network OperationSmart network operation when you’re upgrading your operations to smart grid level, your key goals include:
Improved power quality
Improved service reliability
Improved safety and security
Improved energy delivery efficiency
To achieve all of these objectives, you need to improve business processes, including network congestion management, power quality management, technical loss management, and safety management.
Intelligent Customer ServiceYour customers place high demands on the quality of your service. You can achieve this by:
Improving meter-to-cash efficiency and effectiveness
Managing customer demand for the benefit of the grid
Improving customer satisfaction and engagement
Reducing non-technical losses
Business processes relevant to achieving these goals include meter-to-cash management, management of consumption tariffs, renewable feed-in and net metering tariffs, and the management of eMobility schemes. These processes must be evaluated and strategically expanded.
Smart EnergyConsumers become “prosumers” both producers and consumers. This is one of the major paradigm changes of the smart grid. What objectives should you set for your company?
Enable achievement of carbon reduction targets
Enable achievement of DG targets
Enable electrification of transportation
Support customers’ desire for localized energy surety
Your success depends on the performance of an array of business processes, including load control for commercial and industrial customers, management for electric vehicle charging, and management of distributed storage.
Smart Asset and Work ManagementHigh availability is a must for smart grids but the costs must be reasonable. Are you well-prepared to meet these demands? Typical maintenance and asset management goals include:
Optimized CAPEX vs. OPEX spend on grid
Optimized risk distribution across grid
Improved work process efficiency
Improved availability and quality of asset information
The performance level of business processes – like grid information management, maintenance management, and forecasting of key performance indicators – are key to achieving these goals.
Smart OrganizationIs your organization ready to set its course toward an interactive and dynamic company? Objectives are:
Flexibility to adapt to changes of business environment
Seamless integration of operation and information technologies
Optimized stakeholder relationship
To attain these goals, management tools need to be refined, including change management, regulatory reporting, stakeholder management, and information security and cyber security.
