One of the largest electric utilities in the United States serving more than 15 million customers over a 50,000 square mile service territory had to meet regulatory mandates: generate 30% of installed energy capacity through renewable sources by 2020, up to 60% by 2030, and achieve a 100% transition to clean energy by 2045.
The clean energy roadmap demanded sophisticated grid planning and modeling while ensuring safety and reliability of existing operations. In addition, the grid modernization program had to balance existing grid assets with additional capacity of customers opting for renewable sources of energy.
Infosys adopted the Agile methodology to implement an end-to-end grid connectivity solution covering solution development, program integration, environment management, and testing.
Our holistic solution enhanced the accuracy of customer profiles and ensured better forecasting. Our team undertook engineering analysis for increased adoption of distributed energy resources.
Smart meter data analytics and GIS capabilities enabled the electric utility to reduce its capital expenditure without adding greenfield infrastructure.
