Today Siemens and Accenture unveiled the completion of their new smart grid joint venture, Omnetric Group. This company will combine Siemens' leading energy product portfolio with Accenture's recognized smart grid systems integration, consulting and managed services.
Initially announced at European Utility Week 2013, Omnetric Group is now ready to provide utilities around the world with advanced smart grid solutions and services. The focus will be primarily on data management and systems integration, with the goal of enhancing energy efficiency, grid operations and reliability.
