Adapting to tectonic energy shifts
As demand for clean heat grows in France, so does the need for Coriance, a French district heating provider, to quickly, efficiently and safely generate and store electricity at local power stations. As a provider of heat across vast municipal networks, the company knew it needed to embrace digital innovation. It was also seeking new ways to improve sustainability and efficiency. The potential savings could be used for accelerating its renewable energy investments and to further expand upon Coriance’s sustainability commitments.
Coriance had long relied on several Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems previously installed by local municipalities. However, these traditional control networks lacked data cohesion and consistency. Their engineers had to manually enter data into complex spreadsheets, making it impossible to analyze power meter data from one centralized location—let alone use it to improve asset performance, increase power production and adjust to avoid problems. The company needed to unify its reporting systems and dramatically enhance the quality and usefulness of all operational data.
