Infosys NextGen Grid Platform
Energy and Utility companies are undergoing a profound transformation with the deep penetration of Distributed Energy Resources, Electric Vehicles and Storage and they need to pick up pace on adoption of digital strategies to support the accelerated market disruptions. Consumers now actively perceive utilities to be beyond their energy supplier and integral in meeting their individualized energy demands from renewable energy sources.
A comprehensive digital platform keeping customer at the center is required to operate the grid in a more reliable manner and to focus on customer experiences.
