Increased use of distributed energy resources (DERs), electric vehicles (EVs), and intelligent automation applications require a significant change in the way today’s power grid is designed, built and operated. To maintain a stable, efficient and sustainable energy ecosystem, utilities must transform the grid from a rigid, one-way journey to a two-way exchange of power, data and communication. Substation & Edge-of-the-Grid Automation is a new, real-time, adaptive solution from Capgemini and Intel® that leverages data, analytics and intelligent automation to help utilities monitor and manage load and flow across all grid assets, simplify the energy ecosystem, prioritize production and consumption of clean energy sources, and flatten the rate structure. Through substation modernization, utilities can improve the overall reliability, resiliency and sustainability of the grid while also unlocking valuable operational efficiencies and cost reductions. Capgemini and Intel’s Substation & Edge-of-the-Grid Automation service offer is the only non-proprietary, end-to-end, industry-driven solution that addresses the full energy value chain, from consulting and business services, to implementation and integration through delivery and operations. The solution combines Capgemini’s extensive domain expertise and business consulting services with Intel’s best-in-class technology and AI/machine learning capabilities to help utility clients enable the multidirectional flow needed to seamlessly manage supply and demand across the grid, including large and small loads and a variety of generation sources.
