Enhancing utility reliability, sustainability and resiliency through Substation and Edge-of-the-Grid Automation
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, prioritise production and consumption of clean energy sources, and flatten the rate structure. Through substation modernisation, utilities can improve the overall reliability, resiliency and sustainability of the grid while also unlocking valuable operational efficiencies and cost reductions.
Purpose built for grid transformation
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.
The Substation & Edge-of-the-Grid Automation solution is fully integrated with the Intel platform and can be operated through engineering, research & development services. System upgrades and maintenance are also supported as a service, improving flexibility and scalability while enabling valuable operational efficiencies and cost savings throughout the business.
Driving business value through a two-way grid
Grid transformation begins with substation modernisation. Capgemini and Intel’s Substation & Edge-of-the-Grid Automation solution helps organisations jumpstart their transformation journey by enhancing the digital capabilities of existing substations through data, analytics and intelligent automation.
