Mercatus - Investment Lifecycle Management for Energy

Today’s energy sector is undergoing a radical transformation, where the onset of distributed generation presents 'innovate or die' paradigm. It’s no longer enough to wait for tried and proven methods in the face of disruption, competition and smaller agile new entrants.

How will the utility of yesterday maintain competitive edge and advantage in the energy sector of tomorrow? Investment will be key but with that comes risk - Haresh Patel, CEO, Mercatus

Mercatus has outlined four key areas where an integrated asset investment management approach will make a difference for utilities in fast emerging and competitive markets;

  • Gain speed and agility throughout your organisation, so that you grow your portfolio faster than the competition and stay ahead of overrising costs
  • Simplify quality control and compliance throughout the asset investment process
  • Gain better insight into your portfolio through trustworthy project data, allowing you to make smart, objective investment decisions
  • Improve efficiency by doing more with less, allowing you to get more MW production using less resources

Through a series of project show cases and panel discussions we will get you up to speed on how best to manage your investment and asset strategy in the increasingly dynamic energy sector through innovative software.

You will learn how to balance renewables, manage multi-asset and site portfolios, deal with digital and data driven change and jump to the front of the queue in innovation and software adoption.

Don’t just take our word for it. Check out the content below and let’s begin your journey to a successful future today!

In this session our experts will give you a sense of how they are transforming their operations and asset management through digitisation and how the sector as a whole is embracing change.

A 2014 report by Accenture set out that digitisation is set to transform the way we see grid operation and asset management. Real-time asset performance data provides the opportunity to analyse this information to improve operations, and digital transformation principles promise to improve fault isolation and outages, optimize performance, and more effectively integrate distributed assets. In this session, we will explore:

  • What does the digital field worker look like?
  • Where will digital asset management make the most impact?
  • How close to real time can you go and can we predict the future?
  • What are the risks to the grid with all the connected things?

Join us in this session to get a sense of how our industry experts  are transforming the way they manage their operations and assets through digitisation and how the sector as a whole is embracing change.

This webinar is part of our "Digital Transformation" In focus track on Engerati.
