As Transmission Operators, regardless if you are regulated or deregulated, private or government-owned, you are facing new challenges as you operate the increasingly complex, dynamic, and constantly evolving modern grid. Regulatory and legislative changes, new business models, increased number of smart, interconnected devices, integration of renewable and distributed energy sources, demand response, and power electronics, aging workforce, and increased operation and maintenance cost are only few of the added factors that are transforming the way transmission grids are operated.
Yet, you are still responsible for providing a secure and stable system, anticipating and planning for system expansion and the interconnection to all the various types of new energy sources, for complying with environmental and industry regulation, and swiftly to reacting to change in the consumption patterns.
As Generation, regardless if are traditional non-deregulated entity, are a renewable energy provider, or an independent power producer, you are facing new challenges, as well: integration and coordination of a more diverse fleet that includes traditional and renewable resources, aging generation fleet management, CO2-free generation, and energy efficiency in a smarter grid environment.
To manage such a complex system with so many constraints, you need a reliable, dependable, secure, efficient Energy Management System.
