April 18, 2018

 

From thermal powered stations to now distributed generation using solar cells, Utility industry has come very far. Utilities of future are going to be self-governed and automated, leveraging digital wave which, from generation to distribution is impacting the entire value chain of this industry.

Remaining under strong regulatory pressure in many countries, energy companies experience significant EBIT shift from generation to retail and renewables. According to McKinsey analysis new technologies may have demonstrable impact on utility earnings at the level of 23% EBIT improvement all along the value chain. The new utility of the future captures opportunities in Generation (data-driven asset strategies including preventative and condition-based maintenance and predictive outage; distributed energy resources enabled by big data-driven supply and demand alignment), Distribution (smart grid allows automated controls to improve network resiliency, safety and efficiency enabling losses reduction, low and medium voltage grid visibility and optimization), Retail (customer interactions governed by analysis of customer behavior, segmentation and personalized omnichannel communication).

Learn how Microsoft helps Utility companies to become Digital Utility by creating the environment for turning their multi-source data (supply-demand, distributed generation, grid, customer, prosumer, trading, weather, etc.) into business outcomes.
